“Dor”

Hi all! ^_^

I’ve been really, really busy lately and between projects, moving from one country to another and trying to make a living, I’ve managed to squeeze in some more work. Those of you who follow me on Facebook  are more up to date with my activity as I update that space more often 😀 Please do join me on my facebook page and take part in my future little contests which I’ll be organizing there … The result of one such contest is the illustration bellow. I’ve asked my followers to suggest me their own ideas to draw or to take the chance and request a free commission if they wanted any, and then the winning idea was illustrated in a full color illustration. I’ve also kept everyone updated with the process I’ve gone through to produce the image. I’ve posted some of the steps as well.

The winning idea was to illustrate the connection between mother and child and the concept of “dor” – a Romanian word which doesn’t have a translation in any other language and it encompasses the feelings of longing, missing, yearning, ardent desire, grief, sorrow, nostalgia and melancholy in relation with either another person, a place, an event, an experience etc.

Hope you like it!
