All Roads Lead to Tehran # 737

Page # 22 completed!
In this project, memory comes and goes...
and I wonder: what memory is?
I wanted to colour the peacock with its beautiful colours
but decided to put just some Gold and Burnt Sienna
because as it is
it better gives the impression
of something vanished...
vanished, yes, but that could come back.
Colours can always be added later, indeed!

736-The Soul

This is my interpretation of the theme "The Soul", a cartoon made for the 21st European Cartoon Contest by the ECC (European Cartoon Center) Kruishoutem, Belgium. I received the invitation to take part in October 2016, and this theme kept me thinking since then. For this I am certainly grateful to the Organizers!
