How beautifully you are learning to come alive in this space, even without knowing how everything will fall into place. –Morgan Harper Nichols
“But sometimes two people have a deep connection. It makes romance seem trivial…
…It isn’t about anything carnal. It’s about souls. About the deepest part of who you are as a person.” —We are okay, Nina LaCour
Listening to a song by Francis and The Light. And when it ends, I replay it. Turning the music all the way up.
I got the idea for this illustration listening to ‘Same time’ by The script.
“Though we’re a million miles, somehow I know that you’re thinking of me.”
“Do not cower, do you hear me? Do not retreat back into your shell, enclose yourself in darkness and silence…
“When the news is all confusion without solace, I will try to find your hand.” –David Levithan.
It’s kinda funny how, when I drew this illustration, everything around me felt grey. I was unhappy and wanted to express that solemnity in my illustration. But, here was a loudly colorful illustration. It felt ironic!
I couldn’t figure it out, so I left it sitting as a draft for a really long time.
Someone close to me is moving very far away!! And I may not see him again. I’m handling the news the only way I know how. Rearranging all these feelings into colors and turning them into art.
At the end, I hope he can say that he remembers me as someone whose arms were always opened when he needed one.
