Illustration Friday: Packed


My first post since March. I love scenes like this, with narrative gaps to be filled by the viewer.

This is great. I love the scribblyness of it!

Very effective, interesting combination of the comic technique and the rather melancholy narrative - I think the gap to be filled in is not a wide gap.

A strong piece expressively, yet done so simply.

Sniff, sniff, please don't go. Aww, so sad. Wonderful drawing, but tugs at the heartstrings, you know?

Could this be a chest full of love?

JGray said...

I love the style, I'm struggling to draw full characters. I can only draw the head.

P.S. Pete! I thank you for your compliment of 'excellent' to my cartoon I drew. i'm the boy with the curly hair from Curl Curl Public School.

You taught me so much! I now want to experiment with watercolours!

Thanks, Josh.

Hi Peter,

Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed Sarah's Heavy Heart and to thank you for signing it yesterday and CYA. Also thanks for posing for the shot at the end of the day. Your work is so beautiful and emotional. Very inspiring. I love it.
