How did you make this work:
This image is a self-promotion illustration that explores the relationship between me and drawing. While growing up, drawing is always the most intimate way to express my feelings. Every time I draw, I feel all terrible emotions and minor ailments will disappear. Drawing is the way to keep me safe and sound. It puts me in a flow status and provides me with a peaceful shelter.
