Achin’ to Be
“I’ve been achin’ for a while now, friend
I’ve been achin’ hard for years”
Achin’ to Be is a story on one page. This portrayal draws inspiration from select lyrics from a song with the same title, (Paul Westerberg, composer). The art work blends text, representational imagery, and abstract expressionism to depict reaching through pain in order to overcome oppressive psychological torment.
