Illustration Friday | Repair

This is not a new illustration, but rather one that I did for an earlier IF post. Because this is going to be a busy week, I thought I'd share it again with you.

They say that of all the things that can be broken, one of the hardest to repair is a broken heart. However I think there's still hope for this little guy :-)

And last but not least, a big thank you for all your nice comments on my post below for "Late." I had been disappointed with the way the sky had turned out, but you made me see it with new eyes!

Esta não é uma ilustração nova, mas uma que eu fiz para IF ano passado. Esta vai ser uma semana cheia para mim, então lembrei desta aquarela.

Dizem que de todas as coisas que podem ser quebradas, o coração é o mais difícil de ser consertado. Mas eu acho que ainda há esperança para este rapazinho :-)

E finalmente, um grande obrigado a todos pelo seus comentários sobre a minha ilustração anterior para "Late." Eu estava disapontada com o modo como o céu tinha saído, mas vocês me ajudaram a vê-lo com novos olhos.

  11. aww, maybe he ended on "she loves me" it's possible. I wish I could take watercolour lessons from you, your illustrations always turn out so well (even last week's sky).

  13. Simple and moving; that last petal, however, is going to change his life for the better, he just doesn't know it yet! Life is often like that.
