Hi! This is the place where I blog about everything from make up hauls to vintage photography. Used to be just focused for my artwork, but it is now dedicated to life and everything that inspires me :) Enjoy!
This is an illustration for a poetry competition at Uni. It's not my best drawing, but I like the concept behind the drawing and you never know, if you dont enter you have no chance of winning so *fingers crossed!*
Heres the poem..
When the tall and bearded careers advisor
set up his stall and his slide projector,
something clicked. There on the silver screen,
like a photograph of the human soul,
the X-ray plate of the ten-year-old girl
who swallowed a toy. Shadows and shapes,
mercury tinted lungs and a tin foil heart,
alloy organs and tubes, but bottom left,
the caught-on-camera lightning strike
of the metal car: like a neon bone,
some classic roadster with an open top,
and a man at the wheel in goggles and cap,
I drew this little doodle when I was trying to figure out what to do for a college project. I really liked it so I tried colouring over it in photoshop as a rough sketch, I think its a cool idea and I want to try and do it properly when I have time because I could see it working as a nice illustration :)
I'm not quite sure if I want her to be holding fire or a star though..
