An artists conception of the Butcher.

Bryan Walton (Toy Machine fan) sent this in. For your viewing pleasure.

It's Diego Bucchieri!!

Dearest Mike and Tum Yeto,

My name's Bryan and I'm from Santa Rosa, California. The picture I drew for you guys is of Diego Buchieri. I'm not quite sure how or why I made it. I saw Diego at the Wallenberg demo last year so I took a picture of him and drew a picture of it. As far as how many fingers or toes I have.....last time I checked, it was somewhere around seven.
