Jac Jagaciak By Greg Kadel For Let's Panic #7

Jac Submerges in Sea of Bold Color

Jac Jagaciak bursts on the scene with floral face blooms that pop off the page by Greg Kadel for Let’s Panic Magazine #2. Semi-sonic shades erupt with combinations that capture the theme of creation. Dignity held in the characterization of color. Opposing the order, these pictures prove that true calm can come under a rush of fire. I dare to dream a lovely dream where all things go away, unto a world where silence screams forever the same way, a fateful place where blue birds fly upon the wings of love, where all will come to rise above, just like the white-winged doves.
