David Stanley Aponte's PC

This is the "front" side of David's PC -- for some reason the other side wouldn't upload to this site. I really love the ghostly flag/face images on the left side, superimposed over the "dark satanic mills" industrial picture on the right. Really nice work.

Well these are simply gorgeous.  OK, two years old, but already they look vintage.  I can't imagine the time it took to put these together.  Fabulous.
