Date Created: September 03, 2020
This was partially inspired by how I was/am feeling and the John Lennon song (Crippled Inside from the 1971 Imagine album). Both the song and the artwork is about the fact that no matter how hard you try to hide it or minimize it, and whether it looks like it from the outside or not, you can’t change the fact that on the inside you are broken. I haven’t created a personal piece like this in a while so it was about damn time that I did. Most of the time, I create artworks from ideas that I sketched out usually days or sometimes even months or years before. This time though, the idea for this artwork struck me as I sat down at my workstation and I immediately set about to create it before the idea and inspiration escaped me.
