This is a drawing on the Wink and Hushpuppy characters from the movie "Beasts of The Southern Wild". I enjoy capturing emotions and facial expressions that build up a concept for my title. Poverty will forever remain an agent of pecuniary failure. It's not a blemish but an entity that dictates our culture...our society. The scene where I took my drawing from talks of struggle and the hope for a better future since the two characters look like they are envisioning a time when they believe things will eventually change for the better despite the poverty spoken eloquently by their dress code. The use of pencil cultivates my idea of timelessness brought about by a black and white approach to design. Pencils tend to explore the depths of hyperealism in art and give out what we exactly see and not imagine...The scene shows how they will stick with each other against all odds to persevere Life at their town, The Bathtub, despite the sickness & poverty they delved into.
