“Piss Off”

No it’s not a typo. “Piss Off” was used as the title rather than “Pissed Off.” The title expresses an outbound emotion, while the second saying expresses an inbound emotional state that can be expressed outwardly. This is a gestural study, focused around expressive line quality and point of view. It was done using direct observation.
