In high school I was known as "Cutesie Judy". Starting life anew I I wanted to look mysterious. I painted one of my pieces in blood and tried serious subjects avoiding cute at all costs!

"My whole life as an artist has been nothing more than a continuous struggle against reaction and the death of art. In the picture I am painting — which I shall call Guernica — I am expressing my horror of the military caste which is now plundering Spain into an ocean of misery and death." Pablo Picasso
Joey choose to fill a 126 page sketchbook with 30 days of exploring and recording the violence of humanity. Pretty serious stuff for a first year. Well done godson!
It brought me back to my days in art school with all the wild hair and outfits at the student's art opening. Below is one last shot of two of Joey's class mates with part of their colorful final projects.
