Rapid & loose sketch self-portrait from a pic, and some imagination and experimentization.

"Sometimes, what you see is not what a person really would be holding inside... Sometimes, behind that open, smiling face lives a man caged and wanting to break away... sometimes, you don't want anyone to know what you are going through... perhaps because, no one seems worthy or sensible enough to know, let alone understand the 'real you'.

Sometimes you prefer to walk in the rain for months, so that no one sees your tears, when you smile at random people who pass by...some offer their umbrella... and you decline, because the umbrella cannot stop the rains pouring inside...

Do you feel like this... sometimes...?"
