I must say his skills keep improving. Pretty freaking impressive. The details and complexity of the images are amazing however I can't say I'm as into this dark circus environment stuff. Non the less, incredible to look at.

from g1988 blog "The Pearl Thief" will tell the story of a greedy monster who travels the globe stealing people's imaginations, all in the shape of a pearl dangling inside each person's head. And that greedy monster needs to be stopped! And that's where we need YOUR help!
The art show will also be an interactive experience, creating a gallery puzzle that, when solved, will lead one lucky person to a free 5x5 original painting, depicting one of the fortunate souls you helped by returning their imagination. It's all pretty awesome!
Until that moment, when we call upon you for help...here are two videos Greg put together featuring new works for "The Pearl Thief."
"When his eyes were tightly shut, and the counted sheep had begun taking on lives of their own, young Matt Riddle's dreams were snatched right out of his sleepy head. The most unusual part about the pearl theft is that with most people, there is just one pearl which holds all the creative thoughts and dreams for a life time, but Matt had a string of pearls. This both puzzled and delighted the Pearl Thief who didn't hesitate to pull one after another until he had taken the last one, leaving Matt, tired, grey, and listless as he woke the next morning. We need your help to return Matt's dreams to him. In doing so you will forever be included in this story as it unfolds."
The puzzle will for those attending the opening tomorrow night of Greg Simkins' "The Pearl Thief," from 7 - 10 PM. Can you solve the puzzle? If so, you'll get a free 5 x 5 inch Matt Riddle painting from Greg Simkins and find your name somehow included in the future story (and paintings) of this incredible character's story.
