In a world where the art of Linguistics is drastically taking a turn, Shawn Huckins
merges our present day internet colloquialisms with classical portraits of the 19th and 18th century. His latest series titled "The American __tier" uses this blend of opposing timelines to comment on an era where America idealistically looked toward the future and "the merging of peoples and cultures" vs. where we are now. Huckins was previously featured on EK on July 2012
and as the intricacies of the instant messaging world have grown, so has the quality and humor of his work.
