still seeing things.

A few years ago I wrote a post about how I see characters emerge when I stare at patterns. Here is another example, this time from a carpet I was looking at. Why I am staring at the floor so much is probably a story for another day.

Working on this illustration, I wanted to show the character escaping from something that was ruining their environment. Upon completing it, I think it also could represent someone overcoming addiction to alcohol.
