Tactile Narrative: Part 1
Ideas and Sketches
My idea is to depict the climax scene of the movie Carrie on the shirt. It’s important that I do this specific scene because it’s the one that I remember from childhood the most.

Lesley Dill Retrospective
This is probably my favorite piece from the gallery. I really like it because everything is there except for the head. The figure is very still. A string of words are spilling out of the torso, which adds a lot to the piece.
When I was a kid my uncle Victor showed me the movie Carrie. It was really scary but I felt like I could relate to the character at the time. Carrie was bullied and got revenge on the school. I was also bullied as a kid and wanted to have power to fight back. I decided to portray the most famous scene of the movie where pigs blood is dropped on here head during prom. She gets extremely angry and unleashes every ounce of wrath she has inside of her. This scene has been permanently engraved in my mind ever since I’ve seen it as a kid. It was important for me to show emotion in the painting to demonstrate the magnitude of the scene.
