Welcome to the 10th Graphic a Day in May!

Here is your base image:
And here is your graphic:
The background of the original image was interesting and added to the story and I kept it after cloning out the bit of Maya. The window blinds demanded some light so I drew a diagonal line with a soft white brush and blurred it. Then I duplicated this line several times and moved each line down and lowered the opacity.
Next I added the caption, which came from the song “Jar of Hearts,” sung by Christina Perri. I had the idea of the “ransom note” style and considered creating the letters from scratch but decided instead to cut out newspaper images. I found several clippings through a Google image search. Below is just one of them:
I used the Polygonal Lasso Tool to cut out the letters and added a slight drop shadow. Finally I applied a half-tone effect to make Lucas and the background look a bit like newsprint.
The music chosen by tyme4t makes a perfect theme song for Lucas.
So, who do you think you are? 😉
