Be True, 2021
This piece was created for the Cre8IV @gorockford Mural Festival in Rockford, IL. The mural is a celebration of many communities, but the LGBTQ community is the central focus in this one. When creating this I was inspired by those who live life true to who they are, no filters, no limitations. Sam Kirk, http://iamsamkirk.com/
