S.R.B.O.B.A.E.W.T.W.I. by Thegiunta S.R.B.O.B.A.E.W.T.W.I. by Thegiunta
Self realization brought on by an encounter with the waffle iron is a self portrait. In an period of languor and declining moral vigor I found myself wanting to hide in a deep hole (or in this case behind space goggles). The realization that I could still act like a complete goof and be myself is what helped me crawl out of the hole. I focused on the mouth and the goggles as they were the most important parts of the image.

I don't think I'll ever be able to get over this piece. It's like nothing I've ever seen before-- totally original and executed so.... perfectly.

This caught my attention as a DD and I just couldn't scroll past.
I find it an amazing and inspirational piece which I can relate to.
Great job.

I think the unasked question here is "what does a waffle iron have to do with this".

Well it's not exactly an actual waffle iron haha. It's an insanely long story, but basically the Waffle Iron is a nickname of a person I used to know that ruined my life. This was my artistic response to that very low point in my life, hence "brought on by an encounter with the waffle iron."

Hope that helps a little!

The portrait is delightful – but it was your comment that knocked my socks off. (Not entirely true, my feet were getting warm.) How often has despair been overcome by a simple act of silliness? You caught that nicely and I happily add this to my favorites as a reminder to myself to don space goggles and laugh.

Congrats on the DD, but I think you deserve more congratulations for realizing that it's okay to be yourself. :'D That's a wonderful thing, and I hope that this shows others that it's okay to be themselves too.

It's really interesting how you draw the attention to the persons' mouth by making that the only detailed place.
And it's traditional- WOW.
