Originally this piece started out as a figure drawing to capture the strong expression of a boy being scolded by his strict mother. I wasn’t so sure what exactly in the boy’s expression caught my attention at the moment, but as I drew I felt it was a gesture of both obedience and disobedience. He stood still, not being able to do anything but to listen to his mother, yet he is not giving up. The way he was fighting quietly hit me. Things can surround us and scream at us, but indeed, they cannot control our mind.
