you don't know me by Purple-Skeleton you don't know me by Purple-Skeleton
I HATE labels so much, especially if you don't know the person you're labelling. I did this drawing to express that hatred, and to show how labels can cover up who a person really is by overpowering them or preventing people from getting to know them.

Could you be inspired to do a second picture to this one? for example, showing the character beating those labels by maybe blowing the labels off herself? Just an idea, but I would really love to see this character beat those $#@$% labels. :)

That would be cool (and I may do it someday), but the point of the drawing is to show people who label others that labels really hurt and cover up who people really are. Just because you toss around a label doesn't neccesarily mean the person can just brush it off.

Oh yes, of course. I was not trying to say that people can/should brush it off. Labels are very damaging to people, I see the hurt it leaves in a lot of the students I work with. Words are alot of the time more harmful than any other form of mean-ness. They come so freely from the mouths of people who should just not say anything at all. The words take only a second to say by the scars last a long long time.

Im sorry if I offended you. Trust me when I say I wake up each day and remind myself to be humble and to be as good of a person I can be in my actions and words. My actions and words are all that matter after all. You are a very insightful young lady, and I respect that more than you could possibly know.

Don't worry, I'm not offended! I know you didn't mean it like that, I was just explaining the original idea behind the drawing as an answer to your question :)

thanks for knowing I did not mean it in any negative way.
