My illustration was inspired by a question I’ve been mulling over to understand the pain of my incessant self-destructive tendencies. Are humans really their own worst enemy? Does the critical inner voice ever shut up? Why are we afraid of reaching our true potential?


I wanted to create a visually striking imagery that is repulsive and ugly on the surface, but hints at a deeper meaning. My illustration was made using fine liners, ink and Photoshop.
