Hey, I was hoping to ask you a question about the MDF. Do you prime it, if so, how do you go about it?

I don't see why. Mucha's work uses a lot of circles behind the head but I doubt they are intended to be religious, more of a compositional element.

Out of curiosity, is there any symbolism behind your use of large heads on tiny bodies?
