The Inevitability of Individuality

Journal Entry: Sat Oct 12, 2013, 10:10 AM
I've been working on this for quite a while and I really hope you guys enjoy the result. I was looking through my favourites and it struck me how images with a similar composition can look so different, particularly of people. The phrase "The inevitability of individuality" came to me, and thus this project was born. Now, posting it, it feels like a piece of artwork in itself but sadly all the images belong to other people (click through and fave!). In any case the point of this art piece is to remind us all that no matter what we do we are uniquely ourselves. There's no point, and no need, to try and be someone else. You're perfect as you are.

Down the right hand side of this journal is a list of things that make up a personality... I asked for help from my watchers for this and I would like to thank bunocerous, bloodawni, Sister-to-the-Queen, Kyndsie, litfuse55, Phantasm1, shehrozeameen, KyaniteArcher, cskadoz, leyghan, nightshade-keyblade, killerlord123, Eventua, Soul-Daemon, AskYukiNagato-Chan, Undomiel321, SolarApple, Wataqo, BradyMajor, JennyDalziel, Saroda, NamelessShe, witwitch, MetaruKitsune, Ravenshymn and miontre for their contributions and thoughts. What struck me as amazing, and so inspiring, was that not one person said "how they look". Something to think about.
