Illustration Friday: Song, Part I
I did some drawings awhile back based on various musical forms, using people and fruits or vegetables to express something about the particular musical form I was illustrating. So, I got a lot of blank stares, but am finally finding some people who understand them, which is as fantastic as it is scary. This piece is called Dirge, which is a sort of funeral march. It contains a fairly grumpy woman and a slice of a blood orange. I felt in my mind that she was rather ticked off that her husband of 52 years had left at a most inopportune time, as he often did, although this time permanently. I believe she was still berating him on the way home from the graveside. To all things there is a limit.
