Watercolor Screams: Niketown

So i just finshed this piece entitled" Slave to my soles" its on a 18x24 watercolor paper and the mediums used were a ultra thin pen, water color paint and a black and red deco paint marker. This piece was the first in a series im working on where i try to blend african style art, anatomy concepts with street art.
The meaning behind this piece was to show how people are trapped in the ideas of the materal world which is why the face is crying and also why the heart in the middle is broken. In this piece i had the character drawn in and around the sneaker to show in my view one of the biggest money killers for't get me wrong i love most of the nike concepts they make i just won't send 4oo dollars for it.
