Sometimes my art has deeper meanings, sometimes it doesn’t. And when it does, rather than explaining it I like to leave it up to the viewer to interpret their own meaning. I find it more interesting to see how they feel or what they see. But with this I’d like to explain my thoughts while drawing this, even if it isn't much. //just letting ya know, prepare to hop on the cheese train cuz its gonna get real gooey AND LONG OOPS ;;
Recently, I’ve realized the hate surrounding BTS and J-hope. I’m not sure if it’s old news or not as I tend to stay away from the drama side of kpop. But just knowing that there are others out there who want to hurt these wonderful and passionate people merely because they may not be perfect; it baffling.
Having this in the back of my mind, I watched an episode of American Hustle Life (something I have yet to finish) and J-Hope began talking to Jin about his struggles at the beginning of his career; addressing one of the things people disliked him for. His inexperience with rapping. He seems to be a little hard on himself when he brings it up and I can tell he doesn't like disappointing people. So being told you're no good and you don't belong, it must have been painful. It blows my mind to think someone can judge another for something they may be inexperienced with at the time. That’s like telling the 10-year-old me I suck at drawing and I should just quit now. Thinking about it, not being where I am and doing what I’m doing, it could have very well been a path for me. And it could have been a path for him too. But despite what people said, he was given a chance; he gave himself that chance. And by believing in his self-worth and wanting it hard enough, he got it. I couldn’t be any happier for him.
And these thoughts don’t just go for BTS. No one should be judged for what they look like, what skills they may or may not possess, or for what other people say about them but by the quality of their character and how they make YOU feel.
All of this in mind -the hardships, negativity, moments of overcoming- I created this. It looks simple but it's quite meaningful.
Love always comes to those who need it. It’s always there.
And when you need it, love will come.
Some from close by, others from afar, in spirit.
we will be there.
You are never alone.
Again, lots of cheesiness… but who doesn’t like cheese?? :’)
I was hoping by writing this, some of you might be able to relate as I think this goes for everyone -Being judged, feelings of unworthiness or disappointment- But let this be a reminder that even in today’s world, when you're in a dark place, there are people who are full of love and want to share it with you.
you just gotta reach out and let us perch on your hand haha!
I wanted to do something a bit heartfelt and genuine for J-Hopes birthday since he’s a genuine guy and deserves all the love. So Happy Birthday to our hope!!
It would mean the world if he could see this one day. But it’s just good enough for me to have been able to make this and share it with you guys. <3 You are all my butterflies! ㅠㅠ I’ve been fighting back tears this whole time UGH so emotional chicken stop it.
Not only is this a nice piece but it also makes a beautiful wallpaper too! ;D my gift to you guys~
