Bleeding Wings

Emotional catharsis through painting.

Following the premature departure of one of my close friends, the emotional fallout of his suicide washed over those of us who were there to remember him. Watching his sister and family crumble left a physical hole in the fabric of our social network; and I am sure none of us have stopped cherishing his bright memory.

In this piece, I sought closure. For his passing; for the strength and resilience of his sister; and for the others in my life who have been on that cliff edge before.

I started the sketch on paper, however all final line work and painting was done in photoshop using a Huion drawing tablet.

Rest in piece dear friend, we still love and miss you.
