The inspiration for my 2D piece came from a thought I had while driving. I was thinking about how when I’ve been busy over the past year I tend to say “I’m drowning in work!” As I thought about this drowning in work concept and how I just have to figuratively “keep on swimming,” I considered how I should forget swimming all together and just morph into a big, bad shark that can handle anything- who’s ever heard of a shark drowning? So my piece is centered around a portrait of a tiger shark that is breaking out of this tight bubble of water it’s been living in.
