My work is talk about “What money can’t buy?”. To do so I use pixelated images. I’m inspired by 8-bit TV game Super Mario.

Hi Teddy thanx very much! Hope you are having a creative weekend and get all the stuff done for the assessment. Have you sprayed your piece yet? I really want to see that - I definitely agree with Elena that you should try out some colours. I am quite fond of the micky mouse - I it definitely fulfills your aim of making the viewer feel happy.

See you on Monday :)

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!
