The Eye's of Judgment, Photo manipulation, Photoshop



This is one of my conceptual pieces for Expressive drawing. I listened to my friends talk about the real tyrannical way that BYU-I treats it's students as 6 year old. More than that, this is based on an experience out of my control, came back from a heated argument to find that my ex wife had cut her wrist, though I walked away to cool off previous to that, I was still blamed by her actions.

Group project-Unity, "Life With"


This is our 9 piece 7x7 work for a group project we are doing in expressionism. It's based off of unity, in a grid system and in color. I went for a duo so I could use it as a piece for the series Life with is the title, it's all the mess and crap that seem to get in the way of who we are as people, blocking us in and making us feel trapped. Their is always a way out though. Ya, this is how this class is letting me think. :) I love it.
