I want to thank all of you for your support of Designed Conviction. Our vast prison population in the USA greatly needs organizations like this one to aid us in correcting our mindsets, and the promotion of self-expression through our art is one of the best ways to do it.

I myself am one of the many lifers in Virginia, I am a self-taught artist who specializes in pen drawn portraits. I find the stipple style is not only therapeutic but gives the photographic quality I look for in a portrait. My art is how I connect with people outside these walls. Being a prisoner is difficult for me in that I struggle to find ways to right my wrongs and contribute to society. That is why I am so inspired about Designed Conviction. They give us the opportunity to express ourselves through art and the chance to make someone outside these walls smile.

This site costs money to run and publish the newsletters. So please support them. Go online and vote for your favorite piece, (as long as its mine) and help continue this positive cycle of communication through art. To contact me add me to your contact list on JPay. Thanks again for your support.
