This innocent looking beauty has a fire in her soul. I myself have always been “cursed” with an innocent and sweet looking face and this always seemed to bother me. I felt that people misjudged me at first glance because as soon as my rather low voice, loud laugh, and honest nature came shining through thoughts of a sweet and innocent girl were quickly forgotten. We always say “don’t judge a book by its cover” but realistically many people do.
I chose to portray this social phenomenon with this abundantly sweet and innocent LOOKING beauty. She was chosen not only because of her sweet looking face but because, like myself, she is not the sweet little innocent girl one might believe. On her left shoulder we can see a colourful tattoo alluding to her fiery soul. I hope this piece resonates with my fellow “cuties” who have grown to despise that word and wish that their cover truly matched their book.
