Peace? by BuggelyToons Peace? by BuggelyToons

This was a final piece I had created for one of my units in A level art. It's probably one of if not my favourite piece that I've worked on and is meant to represent a kind of abstract or different view of that of war and peace. I had written an essay on it as my evaluation of the piece and may submit that somewhere here too, perhaps in the journal. It was created in Illustrator and Photoshop and includes some scans of splattered paint that I used as brushes. Much of the inspiration for this piece came from works by Matthew Curry, the artist I used to focus on, and his work can be found at [link]. Check it out, it's quite different and almost fantasy-like in some ways.
Also note that this isn't the actual size for the image, it was originally created at 60x60cm, and has more of an impact when viewed at this size...

Great job, Buggley! I can't believe you did that with splattered bits of paint. It is amazing!
From yours truly,

1. To yourself, say the name of the only

guy or girl you wanna be with 3



2. Think of something you wanna accomplish

within the next week and say it to your self




3. If you had 1 wish what would it be? say it to

yourself 9 times!!!


4. Think of something that you want to happen

between you and that 1special person and say

it to your self 12



5. Now, heres the hard part! Pick only 1 of these wishes and as

you scroll down focus and

concentrate on it and think on nothing

else but that wish.

Now make one last &final wish about that one wish

that you picked.

After reading this, you have 1 hour to send it out to 15 people,

and what

you wished for will come true within in one week!

u only get one chance!!!!! Now scroll down and think of your


Keep going


Keep going




Did you think of your crush? I hope so, that was

your last chance. Now pay very close attention this important


Sorry but once read, must be sent. Yes, this is one of those kinda


letters that everyone hates. This one has been going since 1863


if you

break this chain, you will pay!!!!!! Remember that after hearing



First Example:

Take Barbra Wallace.. She was a pretty lucky girl,

up till she got this same chain letter. She had a crush on the same


since kindergarden. when she got this mail she didn't pay any

attention to

it. She just thought, no big deal. And deleted it. The next day her


got fired and her mom dies in a car crash. If she would have sent


letter none of that would have happened and her mom

would be alive.

Second Example:

Try Freddie D. Now Freddie D. was your average

nerd. Had glasses, was short and chubby, was in gifted. All the

signs of

your total dork. He also received this letter and sent it to 51

people in

the hour. Now, like Barbra, he had a crush on a girl since 3rd

grade. The

next day after sending the chain the girl confessed her love for

him ever

since 3rd grade. Freddie D. finally had the courage to ask her out,

and of

course, she had been waiting to yes to that for years. They grew



married each other to live happily forever.

Third Example:

Now if you couldn't relate to the others, this'll

get ya hooked. Listen to this. A kid named Jordan Johnson was just

getting on AOL to check his mail. He was a quiet kid, not that

popular but

not a geek either. he was just normal. He saw he had mail from his

friend. It was this exact letter. Now Jordan Johnsen was a smart

kid and

he knew what could happen if he didnt pass it on. He simply pulled

a few

friends from his buddy list and sent it along. The next day,



same time, he got a phone call. It said he had won the lottery!

then his

dad came home and bought him a new bike! His mom bought him

Nintendo64 and

play station! His grandmother sent him a new computer, and his best


gave him tickets to the concert he wanted to go to, Kid Rock and


Bizkit! Then he inherited a brand-new tv from his aunt! He was

goin' wild!

the next day his secret crush asked him out, and they have been

going out

ever since.

Now, you heard the stories. I know

which person i'd rather

be, but thats up to you. I wouldn't wanna end up like Barbra but


only me. We all want what we cant have but now's ur chance to go

out with

that special somebody ur waiting for. Take it or leave it. If you


this to-

1 person- you will lose all luck in ur love


10 people- your crush will say they like you as a


15 people- your crush will say they like you

20 people- your crush will ask you out!

25 people- your crush will kiss you!!

30 people - Your crush

will have sex with you

35 people or more- All of the above!!

Don't blow it, it's ur chance to shine! Have

everything u wanted, and more! Now, complaining cus u dont have any

friends. Well theres an answer 4 everything. It's simple, just go

in a

chat room, pick some names and send away! but here's the only

have one hour to send it after being read. Please pass this to

everyone you.. know
and u cant send it baq to me
u don't have to do it!

In so much war, you can always find peace, just like in bad situation, you can always find a bit of good in it. :) A lovely, inspirational piece of art.
