In life, you’ll come to a point that the only choice you got is to learn the art of letting go. Despite of the loss, letting go of someone or something will gain you peace of mind, sanity, self respect, confirmation and sometimes, a chance to move on.
Months ago, I landed on a Yahoo! News article “Jake Reilly’s ‘Amish Project:'”, it is amazing how Jake unplugged humself off the grid. Deactivated his facebook, twitter accounts, stopped using email and texting. Main Reason: He noticed that today, People tends to spend more time with thier gadgets and keyboards than we do with the people we care about. yes, we’re all updated with our friends and family through social media and able to like and comment on thier activites via thier posts but c’mon, when was the last time you go out and spend hours talking about random things.It’s not time wasted. Just quality time with your family and frineds without any intervention of any gadget.
His viral video used Pinback’s “Penelope.” (thus the title). its aboiut the vocalist’s pet goldfish who died. That song and Jake’s viral video inspired me to do this artwork. I must say, I was surprised with the outcome. Honestly I’m bad with colors, i dont do colored artworks that well but I must have to try to let go of my inhibitions and do try to add colors to my artwork.
Well, here you go. High Quality version can be seen @ http://amherst-ureiqn.deviantart.com/#/d5d1i5s

So Till then and Godspeed 😀
