About my main serie “Flying Eyes”
I started Flying Eyes that is my first serie in 2013. My trigger point was "prejudgements" in this serie. I think that prejudgements resultant of differences are the main reason of negativeness in human relations. We can talk about many differences such as gender, religion, language, color,choice, belief, nation, race. These difference became and still becoming the main reason  of violence, chaos, big wars, deaths, homicides  which cause serious loss in human history. Differrences will always remain on the other hand they can even may generate harmony. According to me all this violence is a result of fixed ideas, education approcah that does not encourage asking questions, evangelised hostility ultimately prejudgements.
