lights that keep me awake at night


Writing isn't really my strong suite but here's something to go with
the drawing :)

On my way home after my evening classes, 
I'd sometimes get caught in the rain on my nightly commute
And I'd get to see the glaring city lights from the shops and stalls -
The streaks of light bouncing off the streets

Though seemingly unrelated,
it is during moments like these that I think to myself
The world sure moves fast, with people moving forward in their lives

in search of some dream - a career, maybe
probably a purpose too
or just some way of making sense of things

Always moving,
sometimes stalling,
but never stopping.

What's stopping me from living mine?

Made this with the intent of having an illustration speak out a bit more about me, always
thinking and even doubting on whether I'm walking down the "right" path and if putting
my hopes and dreams on illustration would make me end up in a dead career or the sorts.
The place depicted here is also roughly based on the city where I spend a lot of time in so 
yeah this piece is pretty personal

This was a drawing that I planned on doing a long time ago, but got pushed down the
queue since I prioritized a lot of other drawings since I really wanted to prepare for this
one by collecting references and studying illustrations similar to this one.

Anyway this is my last artwork for 2019, I hope you guys liked this one :)
