january - like a child by Thiefoworld january - like a child by Thiefoworld
Sometimes, when I feel miles away
and my eyes can't see your face
I wonder if I've grown to lose the recklessness
I walked in light of you

They say that I can move the mountains
And send them crashing into the sea
They say that I can walk on water
If I would follow and believe
with faith like a child

for the calendar i'm doing, the first month, january
so, obviously, this is the first in a serie of twelve
hopefully i'll finish it just in time (i hope late november or sooner) so i can print the calendar and send it to my friends
this of course will be available as a calendar via deviant store when the 12 illustrations are completed

the story behind the illustration
this was inspired by the song 'like a child' by jars of clay, but the picture itself was based in this image from the opening ceremony of the 2004 olympics in which the greeks represented the childhood and the future of athens with a kid sailing on a paper boat

Me encantaron los colores, y la pasividad que produce la ilustracion
Otro de los que mas me gustaron de tus ilustraciones, me fascinan los dibujos que producen sensaciones, un estado de animo agradable, como este.
