L'enfer

This drawing is based on the philospher Jean-Paul Sartre's quote, "L'enfer, c'est les autres." Which roughly translates to "Hell is others." I have to disagree. And I think if Sartre had had the opportunity to meet this little boy, he would agree with the quote in the drawing.

The writing in the drawing translates to:

Hell.
It's not others.
It's me.
