She's brOKen by DestinyBlue She's brOKen by DestinyBlue
brOKen

OK? Broken? Both?

Are we strong putting on a brave face or weak covering our problems?...

I saw her on the London Underground, she was crying quietly into her hand. Her vest top it read "YOLO" the new phrase, 'You Only Live Once' apparently. I noticed the top before I saw her sad. It made me think of how many slogans and things we wear that are a front, what if our t-shirt said what we really felt...
She inspired this... I handed her a tissue as I got off next stop.

If this is you; Thank You.

Update: I love that you guys love to share my art :) However recently a version of this drawing with the watermark edited out and without credit has been circulating the web. You can help by commenting/reblogging if you see it and adding credit and link back to my page. That would be much appreciated :D
I do love my artwork being shared, and am all for it, but you should always give credit like 'Art by DestinyBlue' with a link back to my gallery :heart:
Thanks to everyone who does share my art in the right way, much love to you :iconblueheartplz:

wow, at first I interpreted this fairly differently than its intended message. I saw it as the girl is broken, and people can see that, but she also wants as to know she's going to be ok. I mean, aren't we all at least a little broken? Guess I'm just a positive person?

Once again, great work!

I relate to this one so much. I just... agh. I can't even handle the phrase "how are you" anymore unless I know the person asking is specifically wondering about my well being.

Thank you for making a picture that functions so well as a representation of my emotions. And thank you for handing the girl in the London Underground a tissue.
