Must escape
I shall not be contained
Bound to the mundane
The restrictive notions of the provincial
I shall uncan myself.
-R Turnbow

Canon 7D, f/10, 3.2 sec, ISO-200

Self portrait that started with a soda can and added multiple layers of arms and head in various poses in PS elements, final light and coloring in Lightroom.

I am self taught, with an imagination that will not stop. I started drawing as a kid, and dabbled with correspondence art school but never took art in high school or college because I felt it might constrain me. I was wrong, but no crying over spilled milk.

    haha love this too …
    wanna fix the title? musta been beer :D

  • Thanks for looking Carol. Actually the title was intended. It’s a play on “uncanny” and the act of getting out of the can, hence un-canning. :-)
