Shirt Happens

A classic tale of revenge and shiny shirts. Created Fall 2014 for a final fiction project for TMA 185 at BYU.

On Masculinity

Here's a weird project - In my Media Literacy class we were asked to make a presentation about a social issue about which we were passionate. I made a presentation on masculinity. I compiled characters in media whom I looked up to that were representations of toxic masculinity. These characters are then destroyed by toxic versions of themselves, showing that all too often are good qualities are destroyed by toxic masculinity.
