Sandy Hook.. what to say: mind kontrol, child sacrifice, or pure insanity; whatever this madness is; I hope the victims are alright. As in I hope their pure spirits live on. This image just sort of manifested itself but halfway through I realized it was subconscious because I had been ruminating about this event a lot.

2013 is off to a bumpy start and it's been overwhelmingly disturbing/ depressing.  I tried to tune it out I admit but it's getting too hard to just let these things pass. I think there are many forces involved in this too. I blame not only 1 problem for this but many and guns would be fairly low on that list (I dont like guns but think it's simply too late for gun control in this country). I don't want to cause any heated debates here. I'm pretty neutral on this and I don't want anybody going Alex Jones on me. And I definitely don't want any far-leftists attacking me either. I side with niether.

If you do decide to attack me or say I'm nuts consider first: The cases are such a miasma anyway it's almost pointless to argue about; nobody knows what's really going on here. Crucial parts of these cases are being left unturned  and ignored; also the fact that it's so severe a tragedy no one wants to look into it. Ignore buttons abound!

If you don't think there's anything fishy going on here just look up the coroner's interview on youtube. It seems to me that his reaction to every question is completely bizarre. A big one bothering me lately too is; why has no one seen any footage from survelance cams hmm? They show only computer models. Columbine had footage i.e. solid evidence. This is just a couple anamolies; the list goes on and I haven't even dug that deep. There are always a ton of stupid conspiracies out there and I'm aware there are plenty about this one but there are also serious questions. The info we're getting is incomplete

Anyhow despite all the strangeness my broken heart goes out to those kids.

At least I added a hopeful gleam of light here hmm? The cross to me just represents sacrifice and the bunny; purity. Other than that it doesn't really even make sense hence I explained what I'm feeling.

On a lighter note I'm glad 2013 got a pretty color of the year. 2012's was gross.

Thank you! it's pronounced neh-oh-FO-tees-too in greek. I know, impossible :)

I say it like NEEo-FO-Tees-tow.  Caps hold emphasis (tow like the sound in the word tower); Is that how it's spoken?.. maybe the OU is pronounced differently.

 That's a great surname.

neofotistou (Level 5 Captain) @ 7/13/2013 09:41

Thank you! How do you speak it out loud? 너포티스투 ? (sounds good in korean, but not as good as my first name
크리스티나 )

It's my surname, it's greek and it means newly enlightened.

Thanks a lot neofotistou! I like the way your name/handle rings when I speak it aloud btw.

neofotistou (Level 5 Captain) @ 6/30/2013 11:38

so cute!!!

True Dreadlockz. Thank you very much for the comment, and no problem for the rant.

 All artists are "copy-cats", even Dali, Picasso, whomever. It is how you use all the influences you've acquired to create something new that matters.

This is a fantastic piece, thanks for the rant too, never forget!

Yeah I half regretted posting such a rant but as explained I thought it would help explain the reason I pixeled this. About the, I'm not even going to say conspiracies... just the thing that bothered me almost as much as the tragedy in itself, are the iffy reactions and interviews of some of the people involved. I'll pm you here a couple oddities since I had to trudge through a few things to get to them. I agree this is a nasty subject and may not be proper for this happy place. But, art and emotional expression go hand in hand sometimes. Also like I said this started as kind of a Dada piece where I had no direction initially.

2012's color was Tangerine Tango.

*Ashbad Thanks alot. I went for obscuring the color almost.

*Christoballs.. Yeah. I'm a slight hypocrite for saying pixel artist can be copy-cats earlier in the chatter box when here I am copying Justice's logo.. but that shape of a 3d tilted cross fits so well on the casket shape :p

Have to say I'm unaware of whatever conspiracies you refer to and am somehwat curious - though I think the PJ gallery is not the place for it.  To the forums, perhaps?

That said, it was a damn awful event and your thoughts - and your piece - are tastefully made.

What was 2012's color, anyway?

Nikonani (Level 1 Seaman) @ 1/13/2013 07:52

I like the use of the color most in this entry -- probably has my vote.

RIP Justice?
