A New Series Idea..

I've been thinking for a while about the idea of painting portraits and crossing out the eyes with a big, single stroke of white paint and writing with big, magenta letters "FPO" - to disguise the complete identity of the person.

In advertising, FPO stands for "For Placement Only", and refers to something that holds the place of an image, or text, until the final components are decided. I feel this is an interesting means to consider people in society in a world so driven by the imagery of ads around us.

The sketch below is based off older works I've done, and simply worked up these mock-ups in photoshop. I wanted to see what the effect could be like. This is a project I may approach in the coming months.
