This is for an art competition that I'm entering.  The name of the piece is called "Read the Sign."  It shows a kid stopping to look at a stop sign, while everyone else ignores him and the sign.  I was inspired to make this piece one day when I saw someone run through an intersection that had a stop sign.  The point I'm trying to make is that some of us are lost and will not find our way in life no matter what the signs say, life is full of warnings and it’s up to us whether or not we want to stop and step back and see whether or not we are headed in the right direction, also “read the sign”  sounds the same as ”redesign”  because when you are redesigning you are changing your course of action..thus the meaning of signs, they make you stop and think about what’s ahead...

I'll upload a scanned copy of this later..


  1. reminds my of something printed in the New Yorker

  2. Fantastic!
    Just wondering if the guy with his elbow behind the boy is helpful. My eye feels distracted from rather than drawn to the central premise, whereas the next guy looking at him really directs the eye.

  3. which competition is this for?
    Very nice.
    Reminds my of Fantasia 2000 Rhapsody in Blue.
