I drew forget me nots, with the ying yang symbol, since she writes a lot about her past and present. In that vein i also included symbols of fate from other cultures including Baron Samedhis veve (he is the Haitian God of death, but also change and renewal), the celtic rings, the four pillars of Islam among others. I drew the poet thinking of love, with a lover she described in the forgeround. The woman laying baack surrounded by plastic cups and tiaras was lifted direct from her poem, i contrasted her view that this was a childish view of love with the image of a curvy woman. I am always interested in why the human heart is spoken as a source of emotio, when in reality all emotion is expereinced in the brain. But if im going to draw the heart, i draw it as it is, not as a cartoonish love symbol, but as a strong muscle, full of life.Like we are.
I tried to make the illustration hopeful, and positive .
I am thinking of painting it.
Does anyone think i put too much detail in?. How is the imagery?.
