Even kings cry...

My girlfriend bought me Dave Eggers' Wild Things for Christmas and I just started reading it. Man, Eggers really captures the spirit of this kid, Max. It's been a great read so far. I drew this image based on how I feel about Max. In his own mind, he's this mighty king but in the world that he lives in, he's just lost. Questions conflict him. He is wanting the attention he never gets, feeling misunderstood, wondering why people leave, and why some won't go away. In his world, he's a king but even kings cry.
