Illustration Friday – Talisman


Talisman – anything whose presence exercises a remarkable or powerful influence on human feelings or actions. This partial line – "i carry your heart" – from an e.e.cummings poem popped into my head when I saw the topic for this week.

Oh now this is nice!!! And so appropriate for the topic. I like how you've placed the work, by seeing just a bit of the face, the mouth, the focus rests on the neck and the "talisman". And the background pattern in the border, well, that's just EXCELLENT! And a work of art in itself! Great job here!
