Illustration Friday: Lonely

For this week's topic I decided to focus on the sometimes lonely lifestyle of an artist. Since the occupation of an artist often requires solitude, it is an easy to fall in the trap of alienating family, friends and social activities. But an artist without human interaction and relationships is a shallow artist at that.

This illustration was created with watercolor and India ink.

Fabulous! I can feel the emotion of it--and it makes me feel a little bit panicky. He seems distraught too.
