Since moving to Lancaster I have been vocationally challenged. By this I don't mean that I can't find a job; instead, I have been thinking deeply about what it means to be employed – what does my work say about how others see me, and how I see myself? It has been an enlightening process; however, it has also been a financially unrewarding process. This image was the result of some of the frustration and unhappiness that would bubble up; focusing those emotions into producing this piece helped me let go of some of those negative feelings.

I must admit that I'm stuck between feeling bad for the emotions you're feeling, and feeling good for the fact that my artwork managed to evoke such emotions.

This piece came out of a very difficult time for me; I was feeling very depressed over where I was and what I had (not) accomplished. (Listening to the song didn't help!) Focusing all of that into my art helped me through it, though, and I like to look at this image occasionally to remind myself that things do get better, no matter how bad they may look at the moment. I (and you) don't have to end up like the guy in the tub.
