so you drew the ship sinking... and then amalgamated the thoughts of all the poor souls on board in one single image...
this is ripping good stuff.
peace and love :peace:

Thanks for such thoughtful insights, sir!  That is certainly one meaning that can be synthesized from the context presented.  Another possibility is that the maze represents life; a series of divergent paths where one is faced with constant decisions.  Whether to board a ship, to open a box with a warning label on it, or to drive your car onto the freeway.  The freeway too is itself a path, bifurcating many times, yet all lanes lead to chaos.  Notice that the only people who are "safe" are the few souls protected by their "art"; the cigar chomping fellow bathing in his can of paint, and the clown hiding in her Crayon box. 

Or maybe the drawing means none of the above! :D  It's cool that it can be translated in so many ways...
