While working on this piece I was inspired by the idea of being an explorer from out space ... what would I look for to draw? Therefore it's loving but removed. As if I'm an explorer trying to understand the human race. As an artist the internal world of one's self gets worked through pretty quickly. My very naturally started to venture outside of "self." I like that, it's an important part of human evolution.
