About This Artwork: I don't want to be a grown-up. Leaving out my little characters are like leaving out my dearest friends. They are parts of me. They have protected me. I am selfish and greedy and want to hold onto my little friends, my big black ball, and upside down rainbows and melt away somewhere where no one will ever find me.

I don't want people to see me, or find out about me. Find out that I can't draw, that I feel like a hack, and am plagued by my past. OR the fact that I am very, very brave. I am brave and I am strong.
