After completing some of the more emotional works of this series, artist Glenn Beck felt drawn to create something that would provide some much-warranted levity and joy. Who could better personify this than beloved comedian Charlie Chaplin? "The Little Tramp" typically played the quintessential misfit, shunned by refined society, perpetually unlucky in love, jack-of-all-trades but master of none. He was also a survivor, forever leaving past sorrows behind and jauntily shuffling on to his next grand adventure. Chaplin's appeal was universal: audiences loved his cheekiness, his deflation of pomposity, his casual savagery, his unexpected gallantry, and his resilience in the face of adversity. He lived by the motto of mentor Fred Karno: "Keep it wistful, gentleman, keep it wistful." When the world becomes dark and things seem difficult, we may all remember to persevere and, while doing so, to laugh. To keep things light.
