If - perennial

As I am still very busy preparing my exhibition in September, which will show illustrations for a fairy tale, I did not think I could post anything this week.

But thanks to Susan Sorell Hill who, in her post, refers to fairy tales as perennial stories that deal with the Journey of Life, I decided to give you a glimpse into my fairy tale with the above illustration. Here the brother of the hero desperately wants to eat after a long struggle and the task both he and the hero had to face seemingly completed by now. But he doesn't know that these tempting pears are not what they seem to be...

IF -stay

"Life opens up opportunities to you, and you either take them or you stay afraid of taking them."
Jim Carrey

To illustrate this quotation, I dug up a gloomy series of photographs I did directly after the end of my study.
I leave it to you, whether you want to ignore the last picture for a happier ending.

IF - remedy
