"Mr Karoshi" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
滴水穿石 (Dī shuǐ chuān shí) - "Dripping water can penetrate stone." - Chinese proverb
In the quiet embrace of dawn's earliest light, a simple man begins each day with unwavering dedication and the resolve of a diligent worker. Rising before the sun, he steps onto the path of a life beautifully uncomplicated, rooted in the principles of hard work and perseverance. With a heart unburdened by the complexities of the world, he finds solace in the rhythm of a daily routine, where labor is his constant companion. A modest job, humble aspirations, and the warmth of simple pleasures define his existence. In a world often captivated by grandeur, his life serves as a reminder that there's profound beauty in the ordinary, much like the rejuvenating freshness that follows a heavy downpour. 
Amidst the bustling cityscape, Mr. Karoshi becomes a symbol of unwavering determination, pushing the boundaries of what is achievable. With boundless work hours and a relentless drive for success, he exemplifies the extraordinary possibilities that can emerge from unwavering dedication. And yet, in his tireless pursuit of passions and aspirations, he dances on the delicate precipice, a stark reminder of the fine line between ambition and self-sacrifice.
