See me after class


Fooling around with photo manipulation, converting web images into a style I hope suggests something between photo, drawing, cartoon and painting.

 Always loved the image of the cool young new male teacher who paddles senior boys who are about his age.  And pretty obviously enjoys it.

I really like this composition with the big blank area on the left, but it might be improved by a bit more background detail--some treetops at the bottom of the window, books and papers on the desk, writing on the dry erase board.  I wish blackboards still existed, they make a really dramatic backdrop, but they seem like something from another age and I didn't want to do a period piece. 

What do you think about the size of these images?  Is it cumbersome to have them so large?  I could display them smaller but they don't have as much impact that way.
