Here’s a new drawing I’ve been working on for a long time now. I’ve had this idea in my head for ages.
When I heard The Script’s If You Could See Me Now the line “the roses came, but they took you away” really stuck with me. I lost my Nan back in December and the emotion of the song really struck home. Even though I had the idea for this drawing swimming around in my head long before my Nan passed away I feel as if I’m only now qualified to do a piece which conveys so much personal and emotional meaning.
It was really important to me that I got this right because the song does mean so much to the band, their family and friends and the fans. I hope it comes across how I intend it to.
I took the decision to not give the angel a face. I did this because sorrow and sadness does not have an identity. It is universal and affects all walks of life. We all feel loss, so I felt it would only be right that this angel could be any one of us.
I hope you like it,
