- Weapons and Defense Items: In case of nuclear or zombie attack (or both) there is no safer place in the world. Could there be secret weapons and a way to get the President and other important people down there in case DC is compromised?

Drawing a butterfly whilst laid out on his bed, he realised the picture had been stretched out across the page.
On closer inspection he saw how the animal appeared to be floating, and that by chance he had used a method similar to one used by English 3D artist Julian Beever.

After adding in the shade with a set of charcoals, he took a photograph - and has never looked back.
his own blog, thousands of fans on his Facebook page, and countless
pages dedicated to his work, Fredo is now keen to expand on his talents and
take his art to the streets of Santiago and beyond.
