Ai represents a new mythology called Pink Tsunami, which describes how the world came to total destruction. Typically, symbols have the form of words, sounds, and ideas. This story, shown only with visual images, represents a number of different meanings and ideas. In this way the story brings personal images and stories to the reader based on their experience and environment, giving them more room to read in a different way. 
Mythology was traditionally transferred by the oral tradition on a small scale. During this process, the story was modified, arranged, simplified and details were added. I have tried to reproduce the same process of mythology all on my own by drawing images in different styles and materials over and over again.
