About the design
on February 14, 2012
As an artist and writer, I find myself tumbling down head first in a chaotic fall from time to time, days where I feel like no matter how hard I try, I can't seem to beat those wings hard enough or days where I feel like I keep making mistakes or plain old getting weighed down. It's a process we all go through, it happens to the best of us. But I always remind myself somehow, whirling head over heel, that all I have to do to keep myself going is to think of a happy thought, to give a smile, and at the blink of an eye, I can find myself making that incline again, soaring towards the heights. Based on those days, I have Icarus, my most beloved Greek story and subject of many of my own personal projects, and Peter Pan, a hero of yesterday's childhood and today, locked in that single pivotal moment of epiphany.
I hope this design helps remind people to smile and keep their chins up even when all seems bleak!
