“She looked out at the other trees, and she realised that her life was one of thousands, any one of which could have been her, she had grown wherever her life had taken her, she had drifted wherever the wind had blown her.”
Dave McKean, Pictures That [Tick]

Dave McKean, Cages

“Pride in what and who you are is a strong foundation, but don't be defined by your oppression; use your anger, don't let it use you.”
Dave McKean, Pictures That [Tick]
