In My Hart of Hearts

In My Hart of Hearts   8"x10"  Acrylic on paper

Something I did for the music magazine, The Girls Are, illustrating the song "Maps" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. This gentlemen deer is my interpretation of the song lyrics. I'll be letting you peek into the print magazine shortly.

His clothing and title were inspired by a little quote from the pen of great literary icon, Will Shakespeare. It just seemed fitting as "Hart" is an old world term for a male deer or stag.

"Show me the person who's master of his emotions, and I'll put him close to my heart—in my heart of hearts—as I do you."  
-William Shakespeare, Hamlet
