Illo Friday: Remote

Hidden Places

in the midst of the city,

in the darkest alleys,
hidden beneath the walls of high rises
and streets --

lies remote areas
seldom visible
seldom unseen..

but by those hardly stricken
by misfortune
and grief.

note: An almost late entry for this week's

velvet, I like that this was b&w. It added to the overall atmosphere of the piece I think. Great detail work, and the poem blended seamlessly. Really great work.

Anonymous.. not the real "Anonymous" from IF.. well, sorry to disappoint you. maybe that was my purpose.. go visit someone else's to suit your taste then. thanks for sharing your thought tho };-p

now to respond to the real artists...

Aravis.. thanks for the nice comment 8) b&w indeed meant how these images are not looked at, that it seemed to blend with the shadow of the city. most people seem to care about what they only see, and its bothering sometimes how people only take notice others when a big news event have focused them. (like typhoon tragedies in the US) things like these happen often in 'remote' areas too, but only a few take notice.

isay.. thanks! 8) your illo was also nice. mine is a li'l late entry tho.. as i checked now, IF had launched a new theme.

This is the Real Anonymous };-} I also love the black and white used for this illustration - I think it would look wonderful as large as a feature wall in a public place ... it would give extra resonance as 'remote' also!

I am envious you are visiting cemetries! Have a wonderful time !!

Ambres.. hmmmm thanks sweetie! for you i could send a great big canvas! heeee

Anonymous.. ohh great idea 8) what would be so grand as to see one's actual work full sized on display right?! that would be the day!

btw, just had only short trips to the cemetaries. its more of a solemn visit.. lighting

candles and sharing stories with relatives about the dead (or the ones burried).. hehe tho fun to fly kites too (if only it didnt rain alot)

easywriter, Billy.. thanks for visiting and for your nice comments 8)

Sen.. ohh you should try it! fun part is not only you get to have another outlet of your creative energies.. you get to meet lots of great artists too and nice ones at that 8) [erm.. still eyeing that Anonymous comment hehe] And oh, have another reason to stay infront of the pc more tho. *lol

You do have a point, the stricken ones are well hidden beneath and from a distance you don't see them at all. They are forgotten. I love the illo -- you brought the hidden out and put the usually boasted beauty far in the background -- I think it's effective.

liz.. yeah, maybe im just affected at what i see everyday.. how people boast about what they have, acting like the society has no problem, without even thinking that there are people who suffer. Society is therefore unjust, because people make it unjust.

hee.. getting carried away there.. lol
Well, thanks for droppin by 8)

girl named j.. hehe 8) wala palang blog sa profile mo dito.
nako! buti nga gumagana pa keyb mo. dati may beses wala talaga aking keyb! on-screen keyb ginamit ko. inabot ako ng ilang oras para sa isang post. tssk.

anyway, salamat sa pagpuri. nako noh parehas lang tayo! ika nga.. "great minds have similar thoughts" naks! ganda ganda ng mga templates mo. ako din mukang nae-enganyong palitan tong sakin. hmm...

hehe sarap talaga gamitin ang sariling wika sa 'comments'. walang nakaka-intindi kundi tayong mga Pinoy! haha!
