Have Heart

pen & ink illustration

This is a personal fine arts project I completed over several weeks during the summer of 2014. It depicts a club scene from a concert of the Boston hardcore band Have Heart. Although they broke up in 2009, there is still a vast and enthusiastic hardcore scene in Boston and across the globe. The illustration was on exhibit at Boston's City Hall during the winter of 2014 - 2015.

The purpose of this piece is meant to not only capture the essence of Have Heart, as a band and a concept, but the essence of hardcore music as a whole. Started back in the late 1970s and early 1980s and popularized by the band Black Flag, hardcore punk, otherwise known as just hardcore, was an undergrown outshoot of the earliest punk rock music scene. More than a music genre, hardcore became an outlet for kids to let out their emotions in an otherwise surpressed world.
