Symbols Deep & Shallow


My dream and intention is to be an illustrator and artist.  I want to tell stories with pictures and words.  This pen & ink drawing is a kind of self portrait.  These are the literal and figurative symbols that comprise my pursuits, interests, strengths and values.  Which symbols mean something to you?  What do you think motivates a person inspired by these items?  What part is most mysterious or difficult to decode?
