We do love art here at RBY. I really love this piece. When I opened the submission from Leila, I saw something rather damn cool unfold in front of my filthy little eyes. I love the sketch of it and the varied level of symbolism. There’s a lot of goodness to unpack in a small space.
Oh, and did I mention Lelia rather graciously donated her earnings to The Trevor Project? Yeah, she kicks some major ass and we love artists who kick major ass 🙂 Go follow her on Instagram @nastyartt for other cool art works.
