I struggled trying to come up with a way to express the meaning behind this as simply as possible without too much rambling on my part. So simply put, just because a package has pretty, shinny wrapping doesn't mean that what lays on the inside reflects that. Not everything is beautiful inside and out.
When I first started on the piece I didn't have a second person in mind, but as I was nearing completion it felt empty so I marched on over to Jessica's page and saw that lovely stock of her and the look on her face said to me: "Really? Are you seriously going to challenge me? Really?" Lol, my work took longer than I planned, but who really plans these things by the hours. Anyway, I had fun doing it!
