WHEN MY SORROW WAS BORN
written by Raffaela Schöbitz / 32 pages / unpublished The story is inspired by the beautiful and inspiring parable about an exceptional friendship between a man and his sorrow, written by the Lebanese-American poet Khalil Gibran. I wanted to marry the thought of the personalized „sorrow“ to the phrase „to feel blue“. So I decided to limit my palette to the color blue in various tones. The work was created digitally. I wanted to have a simplistic, yet expressive and soulful illustration style, which is why I was drawn to curvy and fluid like shapes.
