metamorphosis: the unbearable lightness of being

colourful mirror art

I have a friend who is a little melancholy, a little soulful and a little bug-like in appearance. ‘Kafkaesque’ one might say. I snuck a sneaky sketch of him from a distance one day and felt obliged to turn him into a colourful mirror. Bring a little light into his sorrowful nature.
