Illustration Friday #1 - Adapt


"Adapt or perish, now as ever, is nature's inexorable imperative."
H.G.Wells
My header, as you very well see, came handy for the topic of Illustration Friday - Adapt. The little boat is trying to adapt itself to the tumultuous fury of the ocean. Its just like us trying to stay calm amid the tyranny of the circumstances and personas!
PS:This illo was done as part of my practise, mirroring a picture given to me.

Deepa i told you before, i simply loved your header. it is very sinister and ominous.
i loved also the message you gave along wth the picture. though if you ask me, the little boat doesn't seem to have much of a chance :)

Mahesh Sindbandge said...

Well a message to living beings....Good...:)

I liked the picture having dark theme with hidden messages...:)

I know i know...boats( we ) hardly have a chance....

That's what we do each day and each living moment right? Adapt to whatever life throws at us. Make the best of what we have. Loved the theme and the painting portrays the thought extremely well.

deepazartz said...

Absolutely true!!

Bella Sinclair said...

Hooray! An Illustration Friday! I think I told you this before, but I love this picture, and I love that it is your header. The light house is very symbolic and beautiful. I love the light emanating from it. And the waves and the stars and the subtle flowers. I love it!

marianne said...

This is beautiful and so is your header!

yoon see said...

The header is very beautiful and I really admire it from near the monitor and from as close as to my heart.
I love the the radiant lights of the light house and ocean wave dancing ashore....
Dreaming and rhythmatic:)
