This drawing was created during & inspired by the final Brothers & Sisters episode. It explores the ways siblings interact, how their experiences curl around each other, sometimes mirroring or running parallel to those of their sibs but never being exactly the same. Then there are the barriers that are protective of the family but also intimidating to others wanting to be included.
There is an irony to the drawing looking starkly B&W when relationships are usually more like ever changing shades of grey.
I loved the quote voiced at the end by Sally Field’s character “It is never too late to be what you might have been”. It is from Mary Anne (Mary Ann, Marian) Evans (22 November 1819 – 22 December 1880), better known by her pen name George Eliot, was an English novelist, journalist and translator, and one of the leading writers of the Victorian era. She is the author of seven novels.
The drawing was done with a silver 0.5 Monte Marte Metallic Fine Liner on 140gsm Black Drawing Paper (10”x10”).
I used PSE just to reblacken the bg as the scanner browned it off.
