The theme of this exhibition is 'Overdosed' and each of the artists involved showed different interpretations through a visual piece of artwork, a photo, or a written piece. My design entitled 'One Way Trip' is a hand drawn illustration that was then painted digitally with Photoshop.

Each day for nine days we released one letter that would eventually reveal the theme of the new exhibition - Overdosed. I created this letter for the final day using various stock images of amethyst crystals, plants, and caves as well as using additional textures and brushes.

He is the protector, the ruler and the judge of the deceased. Osiris ruled the world of men after Ra left the world to rule the heavens. He was killed by his brother Seth, who later dismembered his body and scattered the remains. The parts were later reassembled and Osiris was magically resurrected. Since he was the first living thing to die, he became the lord of the dead. The tale of Isis and Osiris is one of the enduring classics of ancient mythology, embracing many themes that reappeared in countless stories throughout the ancient world.
