The Art of the Tortured Mind by MikeM92 The Art of the Tortured Mind by MikeM92
Newspaper clippings from various papers about different shootings including virginia tech.

on the back there is a small clipping which reads:
" 'I wanted to go out in a blaze of glory' "

The bottom right corner reads: The Art of the Tortured Mind

Newspaper
20 x 16 canvas
ink
acrylic paint
spray adhesive

****
Please Note:
This is not just about VIrginia Tech. People have been messing that up. This has clippings from many shootings and the whole piece itself stands for them all. Clippings include:
Columbine
kent
Virginia Tech
Other random ones.

This is hainging in my room and i recently decided to take the magazine clippings that read "the art of the tortured mind" off. So imagine those arent there anymore. I might try to take a better photograph of it eventually. I think the real thing looks much better that the photograph.

This is wonderful, very nicely put together. Did you have to photocopy the articles or are they originals?

Thank you very much :]

They are not originals. They were from a book that included many newspaper articles involving crime since the 16th century.
