About this piece
This drawing is a personal piece of work that I started working on as a distraction and meditation in my own time. After a drastic change in my life, I felt as if someone was lifting the roof over my head, and so I imagined it floating. It triggered the feeling of being disconnected, and I love that the word has so many different meanings-I wanted to explore. I started with the floating roof and applied that visual concept onto other elements of the drawing and even the type. At the point, I drew this, I read Murakami, which also influenced my decisions. I think this piece is a nice contrast to the bright commercial work I love to do, and it shows another side of me as an artist. I'm currently working on the second piece because it feels exciting to me to explore further in a series.
