“Yesterday we obeyed kings and bent our necks before emperors. But today we kneel only to truth, follow only beauty, and obey only love.”
~Kahlil Gibran

This is an anger management image after having to BEND to “Kings” who like to place women at their mercy in the business world locally.

Composed in Photoshop with layers, blending modes, effects, backgrounds and textures.

Odd Little Man was originally a purchased Vintage poster, originally sepia tone, background was removed and man was brush stroked and hand colored.

“Sing like no one’s listening,
love like you’ve never been hurt,
dance like nobody’s watching,
and live like its heaven on earth.”
~Mark Twain
