I have not actually posted anything for a long time. My brother’s cancer returning, being diagnosed as terminal, and moving to care for him for the last  months of his life took me up completely. Since he died on the 26th dec 08, I have not felt like doing anything, let alone illustrate.

But today I did. The subject “Hollow” resonated with how I feel, and made me want to draw something, but the topic changed today of course to “Tango”.

So.

Here is a quick tango. Feet are dodgy-o-rama. But I draw it quickly. I thought it best to not over think/over draw today, but to just do.

And then this is Hollow. If I were to unzip myself, I would be empty inside. A vast cavern of space, where everything is pushed deep away into the dark because it’s all just too fucking painful.

Again, drawn quickly…

    I’m so very sorry, Victoria, for your loss. Your “hollow” piece is very moving and powerful.

    May your art help you through this difficult and sad time…
