Yes, I do like it, but a roundpiano? And why is he thinking of a keyboard that is not arranged traditionally? I love the characteristics of the body. I would LOVE to be able to draw eyes and heads of your shapes! Just a bit confusing to me...

It was on a bar napkin after all. Give me a break. :)

In fact, that's no ordinary piano your looking at. That very piano was created by a traveling man from from the outter reaches of space. He specializes in round "Astro-pianos" with odd-placed ivories. They play sounds you've never dreamnt of hearing. They unlock your dreams, and sometimes your nightmares. Play at your own risk.

There's no logic in the drawing, nor there should be, if I have anything to say about it.
Thanks for the compliments though, I appreciate it!

I like how frenetic this piece feels. He seems like an enthusiastic ingenue of a piano player who has more energy than mastery. :D

As a compulsive napkin and placemat doodler, I enjoy this. It's also nice to see something totally 'analog' now and then. :)

re: the round piano, I figured he was tapping on something that wasn't really a piano, and was instead imagining playing a keyboard.

But I dig your explanation as well. :)

Nice sketch by the way.
