PAYphone by ~thewes is streamline, stylish and most definately fit for publication. An artist who doesn't overwork their pieces is a confident artist. Check out this awesome gallery ( Suggested by purplerose and Featured by De-Profundis )

I am reiterating, but had to comment. The focus of the piece is very intriguing; the guy in the reflection is acknowledging the phone, but why? The phone itself is powerful, especially since the mirror image of the guy makes it so. Is the phone ringing and he's just a passerby who hears it ringing? Is he planning to use the phone? We all have cell phones these days and have forgotten the power of the public phone. I felt the urgency of the public phone when I saw this piece. I dig it.

i unno...it'd be fun to think of the guy as an alien trying to figure out what that thing is and why it's making that annoying, repetitive noise....

seriously though, i'm glad you find the piece intriguing...it's more fun to let others come to their own conclusions rather than handing out all the facts. i think :)

This truly deserves a DD. The composition is excellent, the angle is compelling and the colors are muted but still grab your attention. I love how the brush strokes are more prevalent in the background-- makes the phone itself look more real. This is really awesome; great job and congrats on the DD. :ahoy:

This is amazing. The reflections are awesome and I love how it's curved to attract the viewers eye. The only thing about this piece that bothers me are the colors. They seem a bit faded, especially on the phone itself. Otherwise... this is a great piece. :+fav:

yea the colors are very "blaaah" i guess...

besides the orange on the volume button, i only used cobalt blue, burnt sienna and white..that's my story, and i'm sticking to it lol

thanks again :)
