ABOUT THE ART
"This piece is about controlling your own fate. If you make your success contingent upon the approval of others, you're kinda following the formula for failure. There are few great achievements in the history of the world that were not, at first, met with doubt or fear or both. For every person who achieved something great, there were 100 who told them it couldn't or shouldn't be done."
