Gran Koussa by skulpturro Gran Koussa by skulpturro
An Intergalactic Pirate*, Gran Koussa derives his name from a variety of sources:

---> Moussa Koussa, recently defected Libyan Minister of Foreign Affairs

---> 23070 Koussa, main belt asteroid

---> The Gran, a hostile race of aliens from the Star Wars universe

A combination of Buddha's Hand Citrus fruit ( the "hair" ), human and vervet monkey teeth, murex shell spines, bass fish eyes, and of course, jewelry courtesy of :iconrgyoung777:


* An intended portrait; lack of composition and 'necklessness' endured in favor of focus on texture and other details ;)

I'm glad you're working on this stuff again. I've missed your work. I hope you are feeling if not better at least better in that you are able to be creative once again.

I just can't wait until I feel better; thought I would see if creativity is still possible during considerable physical distraction. Glad you are still interested; I hope the love for your grandchild is helping to motivate you in your endeavors :)

They keep denying my meds. The only shit they will give me is addictive as hell and is known to be destructive to the renal system. I stopped taking the anti depressant the neurologist gave me because there are no less than three class action lawsuits against the pharmaceutical company that manufactures it. It's Effexor. The very first thing I found out is that it's addictive as hell. Thank God I wasn't on it for long. and then I found out it is no good for pain or depression. I let the neurologist know I no longer trust her to have my health as her first priority and that from now on I will no longer take anything she gives me without first going over them with a fine tooth comb. My Grandchildren are without a doubt giving me a lot more reason to get up in the morning than anything else these days. :D

They don't have much in their play book that isn't addictive as hell, believe me. Effexor didn't do anything for me, I guess I got out in time ;) You have every right to be picky AND informed when it comes to meds, it is in the medical business' best interest to keep us hooked and quiet.

In the state of New York. It is law that a human being has the right to be pain free In Pennsylvania unless you have one hell of a lot of money or the best insurance money can buy which goes along with having money you might as well figure on getting treated as if you don't matter. They get more money from pharmaceutical companies for giving certain meds than they get from cheap medical insurance like you get when you are forced to be on welfare so it's more profitable to give people like me the trash and save the good stuff for the "paying" costumers.

Depends mostly on the compass heading pointing to the food. I don't know, maybe the "side mouths" are just for show :)
