The Beautiful Struggle

This digital graffiti illustration was inspired by Talib Kweli’s song “I Try” with Mary J. Blige. I always loved this verse from him…

Life is a beautiful struggle
People search through the rubble for a suitable hustle
Some people usin’ the noodle, some people usin’ the muscle
Some people put it all together, make it fit like a puzzle
Come on, say it now
Life is a beautiful struggle

That poetry inspired me to draw my take on those bars and here it is!
