Artist Tells A Heartfelt Story About Loss Through His 12 Illustrations

ADVERTISEMENT

Even though we all know that nothing lasts forever and that we are all mortal beings, our behavior when we lose someone dear to us shows how much we are not really aware of it. We tend to forget our mortality and take everything for granted but when someone we love goes away forever, we usually cannot cope with it easily. After all, dealing with a loss and sudden loneliness is always devastating. One Philadelphia artist decided to create a series of beautiful drawings that illustrate what happens when we suddenly lose something and cannot let go of it.

    Tom Booth is an illustrator, author, and also art director whose creative ideas are widely acknowledged in the art field. He has authored and illustrated critically acclaimed titles such as ‘This Is Christmas’, ‘Day at the Beach’, and ‘Don’t Blink!’ His latest project features wistful and sad drawings which bring us nostalgic and sentimental feelings. These illustrations tell us a heartbreakingly sad story about a woodworker who cannot let go of someone he loves deeply. The poor woodworker keeps carving her in wood to keep her memory alive until finally, he can hold her in his arms.

    The artist gives us a good glimpse into a heartbreaking story which will soon be published. “This is a personal project with a large story that I intend to publish. I still do not want to say in what format it will be published and also do not want to reveal the full story, so I will just say it is a story about loss and feeling lonely” – the artist told Bored Panda.

    Tom started drawing when he was just 5-6 years old as a way of copying his big brother. He worked hard trying to keep up with him and when he went to college, he had the honor to do the cartoon drawings for his college paper. Though at first he decided to choose a different path and studied History as his major, he did not forget his artistic side and did cartoons all the time. This led him to some amazing things and now he can proudly call himself an art director.
