I’ve been playing with words again this morning, trying to come up with a visual illustration for a whisper. No, I’ve not lost my mind or anything, it’s for this week’s Illustration Friday theme. And yes, I know that I’ve only just done one, but we’ve had another Friday since then so we’re now in another week. Time’s getting faster by the minute!
I imagine whispered words to be transparent, like the wind. A breath of fresh air mixed with a little secret – or something like that. A hushed comment, unless, of course, the whisperer is shouting their whisper for dramatic effect.
My whisperer in the image above, the one with the crooked teeth, is whispering a little sweet something into the listener’s ear, the ear that looks like a slab of meat. They are funny things, ears, when you look at them closely.
Well, they are in my illustrations when I give myself five minutes to come up with one anyway!
I also think my whisperer in the illustration is whispering in one of those shouting whispers, the letters are a little more solid than I had intended… I could have gone slightly more transparent with them, but I think it (kind of) works.
They’ve not really been easy, the themes of late. Maybe next week, I’ll have an easier challenge… we’ll see!
