Default November, 2008: Out of Control

Hi all...

So this month we have a special treat!

The amazingly talented Feng Zhu ( has agreed to choose the themes for 2D/3D and judge the contest! After disappearing to China for a couple years, Feng is returning to the LA scene and swung by today to catch up... and I roped him in to the contest.

So this month's 2D theme is.... Out of Control!

good luck!

edit: winners announced!

Feng Zhu is a great artist. I like his work and his drawing style.

Default Out of Control Emotions

First of all, I would like to say that these are all Manipulations of photos I created based upon traits of a human being, and are not real. I did use paint as well on some.

The title of this piece is "Embarrassment." It's based off out of control skin problems.

The second piece is titled "Heredity." This pertains to the subject of Out of Control because Human traits are beyond human control.

The third piece is entitled "Alone." I include this in Out of Control is because it is based upon what happens if a person is involved in an accident. That person will have no control over what happens to themselves, or whether anyone will stick with them.

The fourth is titled "Torment." This one is self explanatory.

The fifth is Out of Control piece is called "Gossip."

The 6th is called "Corrosion."

The 7th is called "Disease."

The last is called "Pain."

those are pretty sick... you know, in the good way. Several things come to mind for me on this topic, but the one I think I am going with is loss of control over emotion. Some depiction of rage or depression. Possibly the moment before suicide or murder. Dark I know, but art (and life) ain't always peaches and popcicles.

This will be my first entry for a Gnomon contest, should be a good challenge.
