Something to Blog About

Here's a sneek peek at my BFA final project, Mormon Ex-Cons

That guy's name is Red. He's a friend of mine. He's the reason for the project. My purpose in 
doing this is to see where ex-cons, especially Mormon ones, fit into their culture.

This guy's name is Gordon. He's Red's best friend. It must be noted that Gordon is NOT a Mormon, but has been in close contact with the church for many years. He told me that if he quit smoking, cut his hair, and became a Mormon, then maybe he'd be given a pickup truck...

That's all for now.

What an ingenious idea! I can't wait to see more pics! The detail and creativity of those tats are splendid. I like the noose... interesting. Were those mostly done while in jail?

Keep up the great work and say hi to everybody for me.
