An absolutely wonderful concept, and you've executed it so well. The colours are stunning, very pop-art. I absolutely love everything about it. You've done such a great job of bringing the ideas together, it took me a minute to process it, but I think that just adds to the wow-factor this creates.

Just fabulous.

Hehe, low and high culture melting together! It's a wonderful world, and a rotten one ^___~

NIN is definitely an on going influence though; they truly rock my socks.

I'm starting to play with make-up more in the portraits ~ a nice way to add a dash of colour and mood.

hmm, did you come up with it yourself?
Reply
:iconteapartygirl:
TeaPartyGirl Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2007
yes, indeedy.
However, there probably is, somewhere out in the world, another person who also uses electrical wires in a religious context. Kind of like the "collective unconscious".

I've been plug symbolism for a year now. This is the first time I used the plug as a crown though : ]
