Wonderful!

I love the artwork... but its kind of creepy because when I was little I used to make spots for me like that, except with picture books

MY REVIEW
pic a; a man drives himself,within the confines of the knowledge he acquired,unto high places as he interacts with different personalities who ends up bringing out the hidden worth in him.
pic b; feminine attention meets with masculine exuberance at the bridge of - self esteem, intellect, care and wealth.

YOUR MESSAGE IS CLEAR. YOUR USE OF THE MEDIA OF CRAYON, CHARCOAL TELLS IT ALL.OR IS IT A PHOTOGRAPH. THE BOOKS ARE ONLY TOO WELL DRAWN. YOU COULDN'T BE MORE YOURSELF IN MORE THAN ONE WAY, YET ONLY THROUGH (PENCIL)OR PHOTOGRAPH? YOU REVEAL A PERSON IN NEED OF COVER IN A COLD ENVIRONMENT...LIFE ON YOUR RIGHT, AND LIFE'S COPY, I.E ITS POTOGRAPHY ON YOUR LEFT. PURE AND SIMPLE. YOUR PORTRAIT IS NEAT, COMPACT, WITH NOT MUCHMORE TO SAY. HERE MINIMALISM IS ALSO MAXIMALISM. SUPERB!

The first one makes me feel like I'm an explorer. I love it! Adoreable, and interesting.

Truly amazing! Great work! Excellent realism! I am jealous!

The one with the man who is rather enclosing himself in with books is fascinating - I couldn't take my eyes off it! It was rather reminiscent of that Twilight Zone where the man, whose only dream was to be alone with his books, survives a nuclear war, only to break his glasses by accident.
If the message is don't live vicariously through others written works when you could be LIVING LIFE yourself, I agree wholeheartedly. Amazing work!

woooooooowwww!!!!!!!!

these photographs cause me to feel an overwhelming sadness

love this im thinking of being an artist mysel does anyone know any places that sell art supplies for good deals
