He looks like he means cosmic business! I love such depictions of people with some of the ol' universe in them and see-through, so to say. It looks fantastic and it's simultaneously simple and profound food for thought. The contrast between the colorful cosmos and monotone Keith make for an effect on my eyes I can't find a word for, literally; it's nothing profound but somehow when I look at his face my eyes feel locked to it because of the surrounding colors as well as white.
