Artwork Description

it's partially a self-portrait, in the loosest use of the term.

as a small child, when i would be choosing a new pet from the petshop or breeder, or when i would choose a stuffed toy from the shops, i'd always choose the ugliest, stupidest creature i could find.
i pitied those animals, and reasoned that if I didn't choose them, perhaps nobody would, and nobody would ever love them. where as me, on the other hand - me, well, it didn't matter so much to me if they were ugly and stupid, i vowed to love them just the same anyways.
god i was a sap of a kid. i find it rather amusing now.
but this is me - convinced it's my mission in life to save fugly budgies and goldfish, because truth be told, i rather identified with them.

I had the same kind of mindset when i chose stuffed toys.
Now when i go through my old things from when i was very young, im met with bloated fish, donkeys, and quite a few that i cant quite identify.
This is a lovely picture.
