Over-reaching

This is the last of my Doodle Week inspired, and Seven Deadly Sin themed, drawings. It's probably even less obvious than the others, but it's meant to represent Pride. How, you may ask ...

I tried to hint at a bust of Frankenstein's monster. It's patchwork pieces of a face stitched together by a modern Prometheus who is trying to steal God's thunder (or fire) for creation. Sometimes art can be an act of pride (in both the positive and negative senses of that word). Allowing one's ego to fall away and one's muse to take over, is one of its biggest challenges.

Now back to poetic illustrations, and some poetry, in the posts to follow.
