Factory workers usually make pencils with pink erasers. One made a blue eraser. He got PROMOTED.

Artist Statement

Together we can color the world united! “Unity Drops” was created through macro photography where the image of the American Flag was refracted into the water drop (not manipulated into the drop through Photoshop). America is the melting pot of the world. All different races and nationalities come to this great country to experience the freedoms of individuality. We must remember to embrace this country and the way it unites us together; yet each drop represents the retention of our unique individuality.
