Illustration Friday - Worn


The Fading Light

There was a world where light source
Came from a certain special people
The lost soul called them “The Guardian”
Their purpose was to guide people in the dark who desires
To see some light on their path

Some of the times the Guardian worn off so much light
It can lose it own potential of glow
Often their would plug themselves back on to the cable
In an cave where stairs goes deep into the center of the earth
Where there would be thousand and thousands of Guardian
Hanging from the ceiling
A light show in a dark cave…

Dramatic illustration.

It evokes a lot of solitude. The little figures on the side remind me of the silhouettes looming over the main character in Edvard's Munch's painting "The scream".

THank you for sharing
