Near future... Mister Frustrated-3D-Artist, in search of the ultimate form of interaction with computers, so that he could express his art better, gets this brilliant idea: replace body parts with computer peripheral devices, in order to use them to his full satisfaction. So he changes his head for a display, so that he could "see" 3D from the inside! He also changes his hands for a mouse (no more mouse movement glitches!) and a keyboard (Oh, all those hotkeys in the right place...)! Poor mister Frustrated-3D-Artist... he only forgot a few details, like how to use his keyboard/mouse hands without fingers, or the fact that a display is meant to be seen, not to see with. :P

This pic is meant to depict my frustration towards computer-human interfaces, and the time we spend to adjust ourselves to things supposed to be adjusted to us, in the first place. Also, I mean to criticize people who modify their bodys in the hopes of making "enhancements" that were not needed in the first place (like women that get nose jobs, or lipoplasty, or any kind of unneeded surgery - not talking against every kind of plastic surgery, only the ones made in the sake of artificial beauty :P). Finnaly, it is meant to depict the feeling I (and several people I know) have of frustration towards the difficulty in utilizing 3D packages, specially since I'm beginning in this stuff, and it isn't as easy as it looked in the first place... :(

Mister Frustrated-3D-artist, in a delusional fever resolution, has yet another brilliant idea: to use his recently acquired powers(??) to fight evil! Will he be able to overcome his frustration and became a hero(???)?, am I getting caried away! :P
