The Joy Ballad by archanN The Joy Ballad by archanN
:heart:

Theme: Dreams

When I was creating this artwork, it just felt like me completely. I could easily feel my true self, and recollect a lot from the past and a lot of me is still in it. oh, and do look at his candy buttons I made :D
fishes by ~happeningstock and rest sxc.hu

will be exhibited in the NYC gallery soon :)

credits: boy's photography is by my friend Parris Whittingham. It was really sweet of him to think that I could work on his photography and let my heart out on it, thanks man!

Hey,
I would love to feature this in a video I am creating for a project of mine about following your dreams and enabling people to change the world. I'd like to tell you about what we hope to achieve, and what the video is about. Is there any way I could email or message you and tell you the details?

Thanks a lot,

Hello!
It's been now some years that I love this picture (I think I have posted a comment already about it), and I still love it.

I have a personal blog about being always astonished and keeping a fresh (childhood) mind. I think this picture would be perfect as a home page image.

I wanted to download it, but the writting is still on it. Would it be possible to have it with more discrete writting?

Thanks and bravo for the good work!
