A larger piece in the series, "I'm Just Another Ten Percenter" is a painting about self doubt and deflation in the face of great difficulty. The pumpkin heart of this character is held aloft by two hands. The fingers are adorned with finger cots that have balloons rising from them. A pin is the antagonist here, and as it moves from right to left it is puncturing the balloons and causing his pumpkin heart to deflate and melt. There is only one of ten balloons left.
