"Hellmite #2: Benz", A.S. Koi
Acrylic on canvas, 6x6 inches, 2012

Nearly killed when a shark attack broke his shell, the previous prankster of the Hellmite clan, Benz, sports a shell constructed from the self-replicating alloy, "ylferine". These days, he serves as an instructor and wrangler for the younger Hellmites, doing his best to keep them from straying too far from the Secret Trench.

[The Hellmites are a series of paintings depicting various members of a fictitious species of ammonites that evolved intelligence, sharing the earth with humans in secret in the darkest depths of the seas.]
