Illustration Friday - Subtract

subtract

This is an illustration Friday piece the word of the week was "subtract". I wanted to create a paper cut for it, and use a subtracting technique instead of an additive one, like adding paint to paper.

This is also an artistic response to this beautiful and moving blog Entry about love and fear, weakness and strength.

Thank you for sharing your mango stories with me. I used to have a mango tree in my garden too, and I know perfectly what you say.
By the way, I read your post about the way you feel, and I can tell you you are beatiful and very talented. You have to stop suffering now about dictatorship of the media. You know that.
