About The Artwork:

Introducing "There, There" - a captivating black and white illustration that weaves together the rich symbolism of footprints, flags, compasses, and a magpie, creating a mesmerizing narrative that sparks curiosity and contemplation.

Footprints have long been regarded as a symbol of the journey through life. They represent the path we tread, the choices we make, and the experiences we encounter along the way. Each footprint tells a unique story, a testament to our individuality and the imprint we leave on the world. Flags can signify resilience and the spirit of determination.

The compass is a powerful symbol of guidance and direction, representing the journey of life and the pursuit of one's true path. It serves as a reminder to stay true to one's inner compass, to navigate through challenges, and to always find one's way back home, both physically and spiritually.

Enter the magpie, a creature steeped in myth and folklore. Known for its intelligence and boldness, the magpie has been seen as a messenger bridging the gap between the mundane and the spiritual realms. Its presence in "There, There" adds a layer of enigma and intrigue. The magpie symbolizes the exploration of hidden truths, the pursuit of wisdom, and the acknowledgment that life's mysteries often lie just beyond our immediate grasp.

The illustration captures the essence of exploration, growth, and the never-ending quest for meaning and purpose. 

"Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you.
You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know. Perhaps it is everywhere - on water and land."
― Friedrich Nietzsche
