"More often than not, the sons of successful merchants are extremely nervous and insecure. It’s a phenomenon I saw a lot growing up in Miami Beach. The men who built Miami Beach grew up in the ghettos of the Northeast. They were very motivated and hard-driving, and determined to provide their children with all the luxuries they never had. They didn’t realize that providing a child with everything is the quickest way to destroy his confidence in his own abilities. I saw it time and time again. Rich merchants. Insecure children."

*This man did not want to be photographed, so I asked Shitty Watercolour to imagine what he looked like.
