IF - geek

being a geek doesn't mean you always have to wear glasses and looks ugly, does it? some geeks are cute too..! :) anyway, i choose to portray geeks in their hottest moment: when they're drawn in their own passion, eyes wide open, and nothing in the world mattered except for their most favorite subjects.
