Illustrations designed for a moving short story 'Creatures of the
Earth' by an Irish author John McGahern. The images convey a sense of
alienation experienced by the widow who withdraws from the reality and
delves into her memories. I wanted to illustrate the transition
between the life and death. Widow’s valuable memory – a cat is
eventually killed, but still exists as a reminiscence of the past. The
ambiguous quality of the work serves to capture her despair and depths
of human condition.
