This is an old illustration I did for a science (fan) fiction novel we were writing with my hight school era friends.
A mother is serving tea to three kids, their dog is watching. Warm evening, veranda, moths circling the lamp. This woman worked hard to create her own little paradise, a perfect house in the woods on a green beautiful planet, hiding from the past, from the enormous Universe full of stars, horrors and wonderfull mysteries.
But her elder kid is weird. In a moment he will start seeing things, she will break a cup and all her cute world will break to million pieces…
I bet JJ Abrams won’t come up with anything like this. 🙂
Soft pastels and black watercolor on cardboard, late 1980s – early 1990s.
