pixo/steev-o collab on splotch form 619: "possession"

It's been a while since the great Pixo took on a Splotch Form.  As always, I love what Pixo does with them, even adding titles usually, in this case Possession.  As all art can usually be open to some kind of interpretation, this one strikes a chord with me since I've been reading a very good translation of the Tao Te Ching, it's emphasis on knowing how to free oneself from acquiring unnecessary possessions and power, which in turn is the ultimate form of power and freedom. The monster above appears not to be aware of this in the least bit. Perhaps at one time, he or she was not a monster at all.
