painting for an illustration assignment. a play on the proverb "sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me"...with a sort of a mass-media twist.

I think this is lovely, despite what Melissa said in the crit. But where is your first proverb piece? Because it is only my favourite thing you've done this past semester!

This actually reminds me of those dreams where htey just keep repeating over and over and it feels like your head is being crushed cause you can't take it. Heh yeah sry theres a happy comment. But I really like this in both persepctives. It's a unique representation.
