Fire ๐Ÿ”ฅ

I did this digital design last year after seeing photos of the Australian bush land rejuvenating itself after the fires. I did this as a reminder to ourselves that just like the land, weโ€™re resilient. The lyrics โ€œThis fire in my heart, is beginning to burn me outโ€ from the band As It Is are lyrics I can relate to. Life can often feel like youโ€™re being burnt out, but the land is a visual reminder that even tho we can be burnt, itโ€™s not the end. We can adapt and recovery from whatever it may be that life has thrown at us. ๐Ÿงก

Not sure if/when I'll release this polo but wanted to share the meaning behind this design ๐Ÿ˜Š
