A New Image in the Trading Card Series

This is a new one in my trading card series. It is untitled as of this moment, but I wanted to share with everyone to see if I can get some feedback. I like this one a lot for several reasons. I have gone in a different direction, using the imagery of a fish and a lizard as a focal point, and incorporating the pattern of a tortoise shell into the background. I am still working in pen and ink...I am set on completing this series of 20. I want to be able to put them all in a row and get a feel for what they say, and then determine where to go from there...think about what I may want to do next, ask what else needs to be said, and then approach my next series with the idea if I should push farther with what I am doing, use only part of what I am doing, see if I need to switch mediums, evaluate that size of each work and see if I need to go bigger, recombine, or alter the approach and use a different format...the possibilities could be endless...but the bottom line is that I am working through this series and trying to figure out what I want to say as I go...and see what the series as a whole says as well. I hope people like it, and leave comments if you can. Thanks.
