|Which is the drawing, the mouse or the tarantula?|
|From Vladamir Lenin to Harry Potter.|
|Though most commonly|
rendered in black and

|Pabst, using oil paints as a dry medium.|
|Most Pabst's paintings take less than a day.|
|Quite often Pabst crops the edges of his painting surface |
to heighten the three-dimensionality of his images.
|Notice how the three-dimensional qualities are enhanced |
by the artist's choice of surface material and the tail extending
"off the surface."
|Not all of Pabst's subjects are|
quite so cuddly.
