Steve is really into the DC Heroes so I’m drawing out the bodies to Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Catwoman, the Green Lantern, the Flash and Harley Quinn and then I’m sticking little cut outs of our faces on the bodies. (I’m Harley, and of course George is Catwoman).

No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.
