IF - Memories


Another piece I just finished for Illustration Friday. The topic this week is: MEMORIES.
The idea behind the piece was to show that memories are what gives us our sense of self. The child's hand to the left along with the adult hand over to the right symbolize the passage of time and that our memories serve as the bridge between the past and the present. Paper as a medium is designed to hold information but deteriorates as time goes by much like our brains and the memories it contains.
Hope you guys dig it.

This piece is just GORGEOUS. It would make a great print. The idea, style and execution of it is just wonderful!

Thumbs down on the giant watermark though!!! =)

But yeah I really really love this piece.

HAHAHAHAHA yeah I don't like having to put in the watermark but I can't make it too easy for the ne'er-do-wells out there. ;)
