Image: 7 x 7 in; sheet: 8 1/2 x 11 in Epson Premium Presentation Paper

Diago says: "I just randomly joined the terms "pizza" and "neat freak" together as part of an experiment and 'The Neat Freak Pizza' was born. It's the portrait of a pizza who is obsessed with organizing. She helplessly and constantly tries to line up her uneven, odd items neatly in rows."
