About this project

Hi, I'm Xavius, I'm an artist currently serving in the Armed Forces.  I've just became a father and recently married my soulmate.  I've been using a style of art called "Micrography" for some time now.  It's a style in which you use words to create an image.  I've created several images of musicians using their lyrics.  I've also been commissioned to recreate pictures for people using words of their choosing.

For this project, I recreated the Twin Towers using the names of the victims. This is a dedication, a memorial of sorts, for the innocent people who lost their lives on 911.  I complied a list of the victims and used it to rebuild the towers.  I created this over a 7 day period with about 25 hours.  

I need copies of my micrographies for galleries and retail.  Your contribution will help with the materials and production for these works of arts.  You also will get a copy of the Twin Towers and a customized micrography, depending on your fund level.  For $250 and above, Send Your Favorite Image and I Will Make a Micrography Using Your Own Words!  I will donate $250 to 911memorial.org provided I reach my goal.  We will never forget.  

Thanks For Your Support!!!
