I never quite know what’s going to emerge when I start a piece of digital art, basically I just see where the images take me as I build them up. This is the result of playing around with Toolwiz yesterday and I think the title of this post is self-explanatory, doesn’t need any more words … More Dissolving Walls, Building Rainbow Communities
I created this because I saw yet again a comment about baby boomers being selfish and the root cause of economic problems in Western nations.

Added to this, a friend commented that … More Creating New Communities
