Mountain by the sea
Pencil and digital colouring.
It is a silent book.
Two people carried their death and sorrow, in the middle of the night; they walked by the mountain, they walked by the sea. Looking for a comfortable place, to bury the cat they have lost.
Death does not have any sounds; by drawing a story without words, I tried to find the emotion within. There was no draft, and I drew out the vision in my head one by one. I stopped to figure out the ending, and complete the story after a few months.
