Shoot the Poochie

        For my altered image, creating a sense of unease was my priority. I chose a non-threating image of two well-known childhood figures, and then shot each of them in the head. By using Charlie Brown and snoopy, I hope to create a personal connection with the viewer while simultaneously making them feel uneasy. The characters are not the only familiar aspect of this image, by using newsprint for printing; I mimicked the medium in which these characters are normally viewed. My initial reaction to this image was unease, but as I continued to manipulate the image, I became desensitized to the guilt I was feeling for shooting a childhood memory in the head.
