Perspective

This image, while not my favorite, was definitely one of the more simple and poignant designs of the series.  It is basically my commentary on the whole philosophy of a glass being "half-empty", or "half-full".  It is, in my opinion, a matter of perspective depending on ones mood, or even the subject at hand, making it essentially subjective, and in no way a black or white issue that is definitive.  Associating a glass as either full or empty should not in my opinion constitute someone to be labeled as positive or negative, because it can be perceived as either.  While emptiness may to some imply loss, it could also imply accomplishment, just as fullness could be implied as a task ahead.  That's my commentary on the image, something that many artists in my experience don't bother to clarify, I suppose out of fear that it takes something away from the mysterious nature of the creation process.  The image was created in January 2016, was for sale as a print at Wondercon 2016, and is entirely digital, made in Illustrator, Painter, and Photoshop.
