"A lot of what I draw is based on a reaction or on an instance and I'm basically making constant attempts in re-representing this idea of a landscape. I am always going for the 'weight' and making it as 'heavy' as I can. It's pretty vague, I know. But I've been really lucky to have some people relate to what I do. It's such an amazing thing. I like talking to people about it, too." See if you can decipher the cryptic speak in Speak Cryptic's La Sardina DIY!

HIS LA SARDINA DIY
Armed with just a graphic pen, Speak Cryptic sets about planting a picture on a picture-making device – a landscape that floats about his headspace every so often… Against a seemingly bleak blackened sky, one sees sand dunes, castles, pyramids and wonders what messages lay buried in the desert.
