Sophia’s nightmare

nightmare

You can acquire original Sophia drawings such as this on from my gallery.I drew this to portray what Sophia's worst nightmare is: disembodiment. I don't mean physically, but emotionally and spiritually. She recognizes that she and her body has been objectified. She understands that the culture we live in would keep her divided against herself. She remembers that her religion has demonized her physicality, marginalized her mind, and diminished her spirit. She knows that she is weakened and … [Read more...]
