Ups and downs in Ink Drawings

A roller coaster ride in ink drawings.

Russian Graphic Designer Christina Zobnina has a very wide pallet of subjects from which she draws inspirations.

They kind of reflect the different moods we go through on a daily basis. Like in life, one moment we might be down and the next, we are the happiest we have ever been.

Many of these drawings talk with very clear voices. They explain the emotions going through the protagonists of the illustrations.

The second image down of the person drenched by the rain, with the head leaning against the brick wall of the building. A representation of the immovable objects in our lives that cause us pain. Helped by everything thing around us, conspiring to make it worst.

Then the carefree attitude that we can keep in check, but should never lose in adulthood. This is symbolised by the child playing with a kite.

Art that gives emotions a physical representation, as a way to better understand them and ourselves in the process.

Have a fantastic Tuesday.

Ps. I gave the images some titles.
