When I was 17 I made this piece to show my hopes and fears for the next 10 years. My hope of growing up to be more sophisticated and intelligent is represented by the newspaper cocoon. While my fear is represented by the possum, an animal that is alone and separated from the rest of society.
Fun fact: I actually scanned my hair with a copy machine for this image. You can even see the red streak I had in my hair at the time.
