Understanding

You may remember a series I was working on a while back about “How to Save the World.” Well, I finally finished the last piece I intended to do for that series—it had been sitting on my desk unfinished for quite a few weeks while I dashed back and forth between other projects.

You can see the final 8 x 10 below, with a print of it for sale in my shop, and you can see the complete series on my flickr page.

“Try to Understand Other People,” 8 x 10 inches, pen and ink.

These pieces are not exactly subtle, so you can probably guess what this is about. Mainly, I think that a lot of the big and small problems in this world are caused by not understanding other people—either mis-communications or an unwillingness to try to understand what someone else is experiencing or doing.

It is so hard sometimes to put in that effort (I, for one, am pretty stubborn), but if we could all just take that little extra time to think and empathize, we could do a lot of good.

    I like your work a lot and you’re so right! Why can’t people just try a little harder to simply get along sometimes?!?!
