I made this drawing as an homage to Dr. Jordan Peterson.
I've always loved this quote “If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of Giants”, and now I have had in my lifetime the incredible and heartbreaking priviledge of witnessing a living giant bearing the weight of the world on his shoulders.
Thank you Dr. Peterson, for your wisdom to know the time and place to make a stand, for your obstinate determination to to be heard and understood, and for bearing all of the pain that has caused. I am one among the millions for whom you bear that weight, and thanks to you, I see further.
I strongly recommend all of you to take a deeper look into Dr. Peterson's "ontology of meaning", as I call it. It's an impressive wealth of insight weaved into a synthesis of a vast body of literature which comprehends psychology, behavior, philosophy, neuroscience, culture, religion... I really think that everyone can benefit immensely from it, and from that, the world as a whole.
We can make things better, my dudes... or at least stop making them worse!
This drawing is modeled after a statue of Hercules which exists in Portmeirion, Wales, by William Brodie.
This will be a set of 2 drawings btw... I better get working on that second one...
