Artist's Description

Boron is, among many things, an essential plant nutrient. Whereas lack of boron results in boron deficiency disorder(YUCK!), high soil concentrations of boron may also be toxic to plants. But the main use of boron compounds is in the form of Sodium tetraborate pentahydrate (Na2B4O7) for making insulating fiberglass and sodium perborate bleach like for most laundry and bleach products and teeth whiteners. In the United States, 70% of the boron is used for the production of glass and ceramics. Boron carbide, a ceramic material, is used in tank armor, bulletproof vests, and numerous other structural applications.

For my shot i had few different ideas:

- go the bleaching rout and do a spin off on the orbits gum commercial and change the gum to say ‘Boron’ and be wearing all white and have my teeth shine so much it would have been viewable from space!! lol

- have myself trapped in a washing machine close to how <a href="">Mr Craig Sharp did it way back in the day…. </a>

- have myself holding up an apple with <a href="" rel="nofollow">boron deficiency disorder</a>…. boring…

Or do something with the whole bullet proof vest thing… i thought i would have fun with this one…
well the idea was fun… haha i wanted to have a ‘fire-fight’ or be crouching while the thing i am standing behind is being shot to pieces like from the scene in the matrix in the lobby when they get Morpheus back…

So i did the last one, and thanks to my friend at work who had a bullet proof vest on hand… lol … i tried to get something close to what i had in my head… but as always :-) it wasn’t quite what i was thinking of but i think it came out ok :-)

And YES i know this is a Kevlar vest!! before anyone adjusts there glasses and says in a snooty voice ‘you know that that is not a vest made out of Boron…’ and then scoffs away… :-P

OK the Technical stuff:
Another photoshop piece. I think the blood and back/foreground came out nicely… :-)
While i was editing a story formed in my head… I wanted it to look like i had just landed on a rooftop after a battle with some big baddie who clearly doesn’t follow Batman’s rule about guns… I imagined that i was a newbie crime fighter, who doesn’t quite have the costume and clearly still learning how to best combat crime… But i have the passion to get back up and fight!! hahaha
