ABOUT THE ART
This piece is one I hold most precious. I've been labeled "weird" by most people I meet for years and have never liked it. The word "weird" is so ambiguous, one never knows quite what to think about being described with it. At best, I've just taken it to mean that I'm different in some way, and the person doesn't know me or understand something I've done. At worst, it has made me feel small and insecure. This drawing sprang out of the notion that calling a person weird is at best an act of extreme laziness and carelessness. Also that I'm perhaps not weird; just multifaceted. I know I'm not the only one who has been labeled in this way and I hope those people, if they see my drawing get some comfort and empowerment out of it like I did when I drew it.
