About The Artwork:

Introducing "42 Miles," a black and white illustration that seamlessly blends musical and celestial elements into a visual narrative. At the heart of this artwork is a guitar, where the frets at the top transform into a swarm of luminous fireflies, adding an ethereal touch to the composition. The phases of the moon, placed on the guitar's body, cast a gentle glow, while an expressive eyebrow and eyelashes contribute a touch of whimsy.

The guitar, a timeless symbol of melody and rhythm, carries profound cultural significance. It serves as a vessel for artistic expression, a conduit for emotions and the soul. In "42 Miles," the guitar's metamorphosis into fireflies introduces an enchanting element, symbolizing the ephemeral and transcendent nature of music. With their fleeting glow, the fireflies evoke the transient beauty of a melody, capturing the concept of time passing.

The moon, an emblem of mystery and the sublime, introduces an otherworldly dimension to the artwork. Its placement on the guitar invites contemplation on the interconnectedness of music and the cosmos

When these symbolic elements converge, "42 Miles" invites viewers to interpret a harmonious blend of earthly and celestial forces. The guitar's transformation into fireflies, guided by the moon, speaks to the transformative power of music, where emotions take flight and illuminate the soul

"May my pain remain drunk singing its own love songs." ― Suman Pokhrel
