    Okay….first I think only the artist knows for sure, BUT my interpretation is the guy makes a 90* turn in life and things get better in some ways, worse in others.

    It reflects choice and consequence.

    I don't know if that's true or not, but assuming it is, what's your interpretation with your color acuteness?

    Maybe a poster or a statement about job placement for the homeless? Just looking at the words "under cover" "recover(y)" and "poverty."

    artistic...I saw all the words and colors mixed into a cartoon character...my interpretation is simply a color test for vision... rather a clinical interpretation...but hey thats me!

    Think so? Or is that just meant as him being in a state of peril, sort of at a point between either regressing or progressing and him totally freaking about it?

    I think this piece has so much in it, I'm glad it's at least started a decent discussion :)
