Idea of work
The idea was born on its own from a small sketch. But I think the reason for this idea came to mind at a subconscious level in connection with our move to Germany. Around everything is not something that is alien, but definitely not the same to which he was used to, and in which he lived for 30 years. You feel definitely out of place and I don’t know how long it will take to adapt and whether this time will come at all. But I am sure that I am a stranger to the locals either, and this feeling is mutual. And in this picture, it is this duality that is emphasized by the fact that for creatures we do not understand, we, even if we think that we are normal and definitely our own (that is, a cat), are strangers.
With the technique, everything is as usual, my favorite paper, which I got from my uncle, an architect, and my favorite pencils with a hardness range from 6H to 2B. Plus a Faber-Castell Ecco-Pigment.
