It's been a little while since I just drew something, especially at such a large scale. It's been even longer since I broke down and drew a moon....
I made this -- to put it simply -- in memory of my past. The nail/screw hybrid resting on the lip of the crescent relates back to a time when I was little; my friend managed to fall and retain a throat injury from a similar object. The life of this person (as well as that of most of my childhood friends) has since deteriorated. It leads to the age old question: "Why me?"
Other symbols are left to the viewer to determine. I let a lot out in this piece, despite its seeming simplicity.
