ABOUT THE ARTWORK:
"You complain about seeing thorny rose bushes; Me, I rejoice and give thanks to the gods that thorns have roses.”

Primarily, this quote by Alphonse Karr tells you to look at things from a different perspective – that perhaps things are more sweet than bitter.

But as with anything else, in excess, all good things turn bad, and in this comic I explore the side effect of over-implementing this philosophy. Driven by your admiration (so often mistaken for love) for something, brains, talent, looks, you can hold on to something that is actually harmful. A case not unlikely to happen to artists, I think.
