Hi everyone! Marina here. It’s bittersweet to finally make this decision and write this post, but it has to be done. I’m in a chaotic moment in my life…finnishing college, looking for a job, being single again after years…it’s been mostly positive, but very busy and crazy and I haven’t been able to produce any artwork for TAC. I want to apologize for gone missing like this without saying anyting, but I didn’t want to admit it was time to move on, but now I know it’s the right thing to do. I can’t even express how much I love this whole project, the idea of mixing tori, art and such personal confessions, it’s genius and amazing. It’s been a real pleasure, and I’ve learned so much, not only as an artist, but as a person and even as a future psychologist!!! I’m thrilled to have been a part of this and I’m so thankful to all the TAC team, for being such awesome artists and even more amazing people! My special thanks go to Tiffany, who made this all possible and allowed me to live this amazing experience, and to all of you, who allowed me to transform your confessions, secrets, stories and opinions in images for this long. I had so much fun! Lots of love and toriness to everyone!!!!

This print is his own proof, measures 16” x 20” and is signed & dedicated to RAINN - as an Artist Proof, it is unique and one of a kind. According to Loren, its value is estimated at $1500.
As an added bonus, Loren will make a certificate of ownership out to the person whose name is drawn to receive this & mail it to them after the drawing.
