'Family Portrait'

This painting is about how our digital identities are becoming far more prominent then ourselves. We continue ushering new ways to incorporate technology into our lives and have started to communicate more on a digital realm, opposed to actual interaction.

Or, maybe it’s just a frivolous painting of people with electronics for heads. You tell me.

I like this a lot, Jono! Seriously, its a great social commentary. This is the kind of stuff I did in Art Fundamentals a lot, lots of anti-consumerism paintings and whatnot. Lately I've lost that counterculturalist side.

Nice piece my friend. I like the color palette and layout. Very 50's. Well done.
