The concept of Ugly by Houdidoo The concept of Ugly by Houdidoo
How does one determine 'ugliness'?
Is it appearance?
Is is the destruction it leaves
On our generation today?

Or is it simply
The belief of which we follow.

You can see the other variations of this on my tumblr since I decided to play around with the painting.

I'm not sure what I can say about this piece. It's definitely not the usual monsters and undead. What's ugly to someone might not be the same to another. We all agree smoking is bad, but why do people who are still smoke? Because they have the mindset that they're only responsible for themselves? May be so. My dad used to be a smoker but he successfully quit when I was seven. It took him three years but he did it for my sister and I. He understood the impact it had on his family. Therefore I honestly think it is easier to stop when you have something to hold dear and that you realize you have it.

Such as your life.

You know I put all these essay type thoughts here but in reality I'm just really tired of painting this already dkasjhfaldkfjl THE LACES MAN THE LACES.

I can't even anymore.

I know everyone's said this, but I'll say it again: OMG THOSE LACES

And I think this deserves to win. All the others are just a gross factor mainly, but this one is ugly in a way that doesn't immediately repulse me and make me click away. Good job.
