Do you ever feel “empty”? Like there is a massive hole in your chest that nothing can fill? I sometimes do. It’s such a strange feeling, that I can’t even properly describe it in words.

So, I’ve decided to illustrate it instead.

I’ve actually used images of Superman as my “chest” reference. 😉 The void itself is painted in watercolors. The rest is pencils and some chalk pastels. I’m quite happy with the result, especially since I never really draw such portraits-usually it’s just the face.

    Awww it looks wonderful!Love the colours you used and how you left the rest in pencil and chalk. And since I know you, I would say that what I see is not emptiness, but a beautiful world, limitless like the universe! Kisses from BCN

    Beautiful Jess – very expressive. Yes, sometimes I can relate.

  7. I like this. You draw hands very well.

  8. Wow! Wonderfully expressive, well conceived and beautifully rendered!

  9. It seems a contradiction that the void is colorful but rest black and white. Made me think the void is outside the body, not inside.
