14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Soulful Illustration

I'm actually very proud of this image. It's a continuation of my image Balancing City Life from week two, but more in depth. I have all sorts of ideas for this series that I have no name for yet, but the problem is bringing them alive in a photo. I worked on this image for about four days. The most time-consuming part of the image was sketching out most of the details. Soulful Illustration is an image about a man who has forgotten how to live life the way it's meant to be lived. One day he puts on his headphones and starts to listen to the soundtrack he created for his life. As each song plays, his motivation and emotions bring colors back into this sketch of life. As he walks down this path the sketch start to become more alive in his passion.
