Here is my illustration created for the Hero of Switzerland: To Your Health Exhibition, which opens its doors this Thursday!!
Desolate takes a personal view of the hopeless emotion felt through depression. The sensitivity of the illustration establishes the thought of low-spirit, tearfulness and sorrow, juxtaposed with the use of inspirational text.
The proverb; ‘There can be no rainbow without a cloud and a storm’, provides a sympathetic reminder that a) you are not the only person in the world who has ever experienced discouragement and b) the occasional down makes the up ones more up! Simply, you have to take the good with the bad and this is what I intended to depict with my illustration.
Limited edition signed prints will be available to buy at the gallery throughout the exhibition. Hope you like it!
