Illustration Friday - Intricate


I noticed that this week's Illustration Friday was "intricate" and I started to think about all the little detailed things that I could draw like lace, embroidery etc. But then I found this quote by Thomas Sowell, "A society, an institution, or even a single human being is an intricate system of fragile inter-relationships, whose complexities are little understood and easily destabilised." and I felt inspired to illustrate something to do with relationships instead. I wanted to get some idea of time passing so I included the sun and the moon; and things evolving, so I based the composition on the Ying & Yang shape, which represents things in balance.

What a beautiful puzzle of a composition. So tight, so balanced! And a lovely thought, about our intricate connections.
