Illustration Friday: Hollow
I wish I had the lyrics to a song that some friends of mine sing (their band is called Lila). It's all about being hollow, and how necessary that it--for a cup to hold wine, for a flute to play music, and for a soul to soar. It's a lovely song, and this picture doesn't do it justice. But I'm happy to report that all my reference materical came from my own sketchbook (not that you could tell or anything)--from a sketch of a friend playing a wooden flute at an Irish jam, and another friend giving a flute recital, mostly for how the hands go and how they hold the thing. My initial sketch had the flute going the other way, and I had no idea how their hands went. This is quick, on a crappy piece of paper that I managed to pull out of a pad which had ink spilled and then dried on it. Oh well.
