Whiteout is a compilation of black and white illustrations by a selection of international illustrators and artists the only guideline being that the work must be black and white. My contribution explores opposites based on the opposition rather than harmony of black and white.As well as exploring opposites, this illustration is inspired by love and loss, depicting spiritual torture as the soul is lay bare at the moment of heartbreak, in an attempt to reconcile, but ultimately having the opposite effect as the emotional and energetic essence becomes detractive rather than attractive. I used acrylic, Photoshop and textures made with cardboard, coffee grains, thin paper and water.
