Here’s my illustration for this week’s Illustration Friday. The prompt was Queen. I thought about all sorts of queens: from Queen Elizabeth the 1st and the 2nd to the Queen of Fairies and even Dancing Queen, the song by ABBA. I settled on The Queen of Hearts from a deck of cards.
This week’s topic for Illustration Friday was food. At first, I thought about doing a traditional still-life to illustrate the topic. But then, I continued to think about the concept of food and I decided to illustrate the idea of food as in the sense of nourishment. To me, food is not the only thing that can nourish a person. Of course physical food will keep a being alive. But we are body, soul and mind.
So my illustration is about regular food and about something else which nurtures my spirit… That something else is doing improvisation acting in French! It makes me smile. It makes me forget my troubles, while at the same time lifts my spirit and connects me to other people I’m sharing the scene with.
