LOST – Illo Friday

I had been thinking about the quake in Pakistan and made an attempt to suggest the size and scale of the recovery process with this experimental imaginary sketch painted in Photoshop. So I just finished posting it here and turned my thoughts to Illustration Friday. I was wondering what to do on the theme of “Lost.”

Then it hit me.

I am always amazed at how my unconscious mind is sometimes a step or two ahead of my dopey conscious mind.

    There is something very alluring about your image, and then it swallows you up! I really like it – I can see water, land, people and the beyond :)

    At first I thought this was abstract, and then the imagery started to reveal itself. This certainly creates the very feeling you were looking for…the figures are overwhelmed by the scale of everything else. The colors suggest upheaval and rubble.

    In one word…frightening. This does capture the feelings of those left alive, trying to find their lost ones beneath all that debris.

    Great sketch.
