"Schizo, based on a film about the coming of age story of a fifteen-year-old boy living in rural Kazakhstan. After finishing the piece in full color, I felt it was too upbeat and didn't capture the desolate tone of the film. I scanned the art, stripped away much of the color digitally, and converted the black, graphic linework into a sepia tone. I continue to use this technique when I feel it's appropriate to the assignment." 8 x 8, mixed media.
