Yearning

Years and years ago I came across an illustration which evoked such strong feeling that on the one hand I was mesmerised by it and on the other, I could hardly bear looking at it.

Over the years I have remembered it but never revisited it. A while back I decided to try and draw it from memory, and then afterwards googled the source (took a while!). It turns out to be William Blake’s “I want! I want!”.

My recreation does not do it justice but it was an interesting exercise.
