Bye for now

I drew this illustration to represent my brain when I feel like I have been separated by two or more personalities. I became aware of this feeling after entering university, and wondered whether other students in Komaba felt the same way. To me, this piece portrays "emergence" from oneself, which in turn is formed by other elements. This emergence can be from the stereotypes that people attach to you – for example, being a smart straight-A student, and so on. However, being conscious of your inner self is not always easy and safe, and you might suffer from an identity crisis. You may even lose something that you always had in mind. Through this piece, I wish to show others the importance of breaking self-imposed limitations and how it is vital to use your time as a student to be a better version of yourself.
