I'm really happy with this piece, though this isn't the greatest photo of it...I'll be able to get a better shot once school is out. The general idea I was trying to get across was how in today's culture we're so worried about shallow things-make up, face lifts, fashion- that we're oblivious to the terrible things going on around us. All the time and money we waste on producing material, superficial goods could be going towards AIDs or cancer research, feeding the hungry, etc, etc. The idea for the piece kind of popped out at me when I saw an infomercial for face lifts on TV, but I was also influenced by a piece with a similar message done by my friend Jimmy last year.

wow thats awesome:) great message. You are absolutely right. But do you know of things that a person can do to help out? I mean i stopped giving money to people on the streets..because i dont trust that they will put it to good use anymore. So do you have any suggestions?
Great picture. Great point.

Okay, so, this is really awesome. I love that you've tackled this subject, great job conveying the irony here. It boggles my mind that there are people out there that are convinced their family needs two SUVs, a 15+ bedroom house, designer clothing and a pool in the backyard when there are millions of people that have next to nothing.

Great job with the coloring. Especially with the lips, they look lifelike.

I'm so happy you agree with my message...your example is exactly the kind of thing I was trying to make people think of. Obviously there are some "shallow" things in life everyone does, but some people take it to such an extreme that it's disgusting.

But anyway, I digress. Thanks for the nice comment, hehe.

I really like it, Jenjen! And I understood what it meant! ^_^ It took me a while to figure it out, but when I heard it was called "Priorities," it was a lot easier to figure out! Well, I had an idea before I heard the title, but hearing it made me certain ^_^;
