Pencil Drawings Depicting Emotions

00-Nas-Pencil-Drawings-www-designstack-co
Our lives can't always bee sun shine and blue skies. It's only after a bad period or experience, that we truly appreciate the warmth and the beauty of what is around, the things that really count.

Indonesian Artist Nas and creator of these portraits, expressed this thought: "See the world in my own way".

Emotions and their expressions are at the centre of who we are as humans. Not only do we have these feeling on the inside, but we are able to eternalise them; making the people around us able to pick up the signals, that signify how we truly feel.

In a world connected like has never been in history, some people feel more alone than ever.
Everything that has happened in the last six months, has enabled us to stop and think; truly look at the world around us, giving us a chance to decide what we want to keep of the old ways and what we should really strive to change.

Nas' great portrait pencil drawings, remind us to pay more attention to the people that are around us; to recognise signs of distress, so that we can help wherever we are able to.

It might look like I am starting the week on a sad note. I think it's quite the opposite, anything that can make the world a better place for others, will do it for us as well.  Isn't that what we are looking for?
I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead.

Ps. I gave the images some titles.
