This is one of the illustrations for our latest Concepts assignment. The concept is to illustrate Birth, Struggle, and Death. I chose to use mimes acting out each of the words. I looked up symbols for each of the words.
This one is my favorite so far. It’s the image for struggle. He’s standing in a pile of rotting fruit (still doesn’t look like it’s rotting though), which has been historically used to represent struggle in paintings. I’m probably going to redo it, so that there is more of the fruit showing. I’m using ink on watercolor paper.
