Per Asperam Ad Astra

I have a fascination with the
type of pictures vain girls
take of themselves with their
cell phones for myspace and
the like... something about how
inherently claustrophobic the
image is, and yet, is in it's very
nature, rather exhibitionistic.
It is a rather odd combination
with a duality I find endlessly

also, I got a new Gmail account
and it fucking sucks! I get 8 spam
emails a day... in japanese. I almost
never get spam at fucking hotmail.

Go figure.

that's a really great perspective and rendering. Love the addition of flowers in her shirt. Beautiful work!

Thanks, Ester.

Another thing about the cell phone pictures taken of ones self, is the crazy angles that people manage to come up with. It really makes me think of new angles and interesting ways to frame a person I'd have never thought of on my own.

Annd, the flower pattern is an idea I stole from you! :) Glad you like it.

lol - I'm not sure there is such thing as stealing in art. That's cool how integrated you got it to look. Is it a digital overlay, or a stencil effect with traditional medium? This really is a beautiful piece, especially that the black shadow areas are actually blue, making it a cool monochromatic image.

ok, and idea 'inspired' by you.

I've been meaning to post a 'stages' post for a while... so check back in a bit to see how this came together!
