Poor little Diego. Being the smallest boy in Middle School was tough enough, especially when since he was kind of a jerk. But being the new kid made matters even worse. Nonetheless, he was determined to fit in. It was his right after all.
When the popular boys invited him to join their group, he said yes instantly, without really paying attention to what he had to do to join them.
The dare seemed simple enough. He would have to paint his name on an old building wall, that was already painted all over with tacky artsy-fartsy stuff. What could possibly go wrong?
A LOT, as it turns out.
As the quote read, “Beware: In every work of art the artist is present.” It should have mentioned that it meant it literally and that not all artists were kind or understanding, especially when you desecrated their art.
No one ever heard from Diego again. The only sign that he had been on that empty street was a spilt bucket of paint and a D, forever marking the wall, and keeping Diego’s soul trapped with the spirits of the evil artists who guard the walls

Extra Info & Pictures
There were a few hiccups while working on this light box, but not as many as with the other ones I made.
This light box came to life pretty much as I had envisioned it. I did intend for the black creature to be a lot scarier, but I’m so pleased with the way it came out, especially with the glowing face.
My favorite part about this light box is that it ended up looking like a picture from a comic book. It’s so different from what I normally create.
