i love belafonte…

the extremely talented emma leonard of belafonte is a melbourne based artist. emma usually draws girls. especially ones with melancholy expressions and sad eyes…

i am drawn to the melancholic beauty of her illustrations. they are soft and feminine and capture a beautiful sense of fluidity and movement.

the melancholy in emma’s illustrations portrays exactly how i am feeling everyday at the moment. my mum is not going to get better… i have known this for a while but have not wanted to write the words. as if not writing them would make it not real, would make it go away.

i wake every morning with a heaviness in my heart. i feel as though i have woken in a parallel universe because surely, this is not how my story goes.
