I was listening to my Disney Movie Soundtrack playlist when the inspiration for this piece came from one of the songs. This phrase “Live and Let Live” was taken from the lyrics of the song Someday by Eternal. The song itself is a soundtrack from the movie The Hunchback of The Notre Dame.
The movie is mainly highlighting the discrimination on human body. Though when I was listening to this song, I was also thinking about what’s going on in the world right now regarding discrimination in general. Not only on human body, but also on race, skin color, religion, gender identity and so many more “reasons to hate”.
How I hope that people can live together in serenity and compassionate world, and only seeing each other as fellow human beings. Just as the song means to me. Thus I created this serene and out of the world illustration to express my hope.

I created some mockups of the illustration to be displayed as outdoor posters in public.
I believe the phrase can deliver a good message in times like this.
