I dont understand what you mean...improve what shape? Its meant to be a loose drawing, with a "messy" look to it, thats my style, its not supposed to be hard edged. Im not even sure if thats what you meant though.

It went well, a lot of emotion, Sept. 11th hit the illustration community in NY hard. I personally saw the whole thing with my own eyes from 17th street. What a sight.
Here's my idiosyncratic interpretation...It's a lost soul, a victim of 9/11. The orange void behind him is heaven and he stands in limbo overlooking a shattered and victimized earth. He holds vigil with his candle until the earth is repared and again there is peace. It is then that his soul can ascend to heaven...knowing his loss was not in vain. A lot of meaning and symbology in this peace. I've seen some of your other stuff and appreciate your style.

I like your interpetation. Personally when it comes to art I feel that whatever the person takes from the piece is what its all about. Of course when I start I have an exact idea of what it means to me when I do it, but that is more just for me and my vision. I love to see what different people take from it themselves.
