There's clearly a nod to Banksy's "Waiting in Vain" with a dash of self-referential irony, with the shadow obviously denoting a past of a string of regrets that still haunts the subject. And yet, there is child-like optimism in the emoji-esque removal of the nose, letting the audience know that the subject is charting their own course. It's the tension between "today" (3d man) and shadow (on the ground) that drives viewers to question their own spirituality and relation to the universe. Are we three-dimensional characters or shadows of God's existence? Can we break away from our past or are we fated to a path we cannot escape? This tension is inescapable for humanity, and the artist captures the essence of the 'everyperson' as well as the 'lost soul' and the 'shadow redeemed'. We are all that person, and we relish our stories being told.
Miles of improvement.

@Dragoon0106, hmm, yes. That's EXACTLY what I was going to say. It's so refreshing to see another erudite for once. It can get quite lonesome, having such a vastly advanced intellect, but I don't need to tell you such a thing. I am quite sure you well know the envy & scorn that common men direct toward those of a higher mind. Yes, I can sense your kindred spirit and that you too are accustomed to the loneliness which accompanies those of noble intellect. I pray you will embrace this rare opportunity to banish your loneliness instead of succumbing to the same envy that consumes our inferiors - for I am most excited to find in this community an individual possessed of an intellect nearly as luminous as my own!
@King Spunkmonkey, have you watched rick and morty? I think you’d be a fan.
@King Spunkmonkey, I call it: Bold and Brash!
I can’t even do that. Bravo
IM BACK!!! I deleted the app and reinstalled during the crash, then I couldn't figure out my password or email. I've been here the whole time.
I had no mouth, and I had to scream.
@Weird Porn Stash, I know right. I emailed Stuckpixel during the crash just to make sure that I wasn't the only one experiencing this issue as well
