Illustration Friday - Hollow


We are the hollow men....
is the first line from T.S. Elliot's poem titled 'The hollow men'. This week's Illustration Friday topic was a tough one for me to illustrate. I had a hard time deciding how to show 'hollow, so I went with this quick sketch, and I mean 'quick' sketch. This will never be mistaken for fine art, haha!
I made a commitment to attempt each weeks theme, and I wasn't about to be beaten by a little word.
So here are my 'hollow' men (and one woman) trudging off to work.

Love it Betty - There is a lot of emotion in the title and the illustration.

Good for you. I think you did well! Here's to your commitment to keep pressing through the IF words - some weeks are hard...and you did well! Thanks for the kind words at my blog...you keep presing on!

I like your interpretation - good job! I would think coming up with new art every Friday for a specific topic is pretty hard, keep up the great work!

You so got the feeling of 'hollow'. I feel the regret of the hollowness awaiting. Nice!

Dear Betty:

You don't think it will ever be taken for fine art. Maybe not. But it is one of my favourite things you have done.

I love the truth in it and the people in a childlike way seem more real than many paintings I have seen.

I think it is amazing.

Betty I want to thank you for being there for me today. You have lifted my spirits, you are right, we are not beaten yet.

Thank you dear friend.

Love Renee xoxox
