  1. Way to take the first plunge, Mark!

    I like the selection – I personally see a lot of groupings of three and 2 images that really go together, and then bringing in more to fill out the 5 minimum can really be a chance to shape a game in a cool direction.

  2. Very surreal combinations spring to mind. Great selection.
