Yes. I need to be me even if it is hard. And believe me it is tough these days. (For instance, being gender-dysphoric AND a racial-conservative here...) But yeah. You either stick by yourself or get trampled underfoot.

Nice job on the concept and color choices. Also I notice the space between the Y and the O in yourself has a larger gap in between each other than the rest of the letters. I'm sorry it's just once I learned kerning and lettering I pick up on those really fast. Other than that, nice job keep up the excellent work.

Wow, you respond to everyone... that's awesome :XD: But anyway, this reminds me of Lance Armstrong and everything that he's done so it immediately brings to me a positive connotation! The message is definitely idealistic and one that I agree with. Too many people emphasize being "nonconformists" (which is really a self-contradiction when you think about it) as if all conformism is bad. It isn't, really. What about conforming to the idea of being polite? Or to a simple one; standing in line rather than cutting? Right now I think it's a neutral thing, like choice and change. Both can go either way, both good and/or bad depending on the behavior. If the behavior is antisocial, such as the KKK and Hitler's campaign, then conformism is bad.

Sorry. I got off on a tangent there.

I think the emphasis should indeed lay on being true to yourself, whether or not that means going along with or defying norms. (I just hope being "true to yourself" doesn't mean you enjoy doing illegal stuff... lol... :x)

I agree with what you say. But this piece is not meant to be that in depth. I am aiming this more at people that are afraid of being true to themselves in various aspects of their lives because of what people think and therefore hide themselves and lie to everyone just to keep everyone else happy rather than themselves :)

Aha, it's alright. I dont mind, I quite like the in depth comments going into detail that get posted on my work (especially the typography pieces). It all makes for interesting reading :)
