“I see a girl with her head a certain way, and I find it telling, emotional, and I want to communicate that certain truth. That truth or emotion makes us feel less alone, more human. Everyone goes through life with their own problems, but we live in a pretty universal world. I’ve found that the more personal the piece, the more people connect with it.” – Malcolm Liepke
