These Two Things by JackRaz These Two Things by JackRaz
"These Two Things"
Pen & Colored Ink in Book
2010

This is the first page of a sketchbook a friend and I were going to do together. The concept behind it was art with the heart, or art & the heart.

When I first saw this in my inbox I thought it was just a diagram, then I realized it had to have more to it, so I clicked. I'm really glad I did. The picture itself is lovely and the message just makes it even better.

I really love the way the veins look spidering over the heart.

I feel a bit like an idiot, but...what are the "two things" referred to? Either way I think this piece is amazing, I like the medical illustration aesthetic combined with the very artistic message.

Don't feel like an idiot. The "two things" refer to heart and art. One being a picture of something, the other is what it actually is. Kind of like Magritte's famous piece, "This is Not a Pipe". :) Anyway, I'm really glad you liked it and thank you for your great comments.

I'm a medical student so I may be appreciating this even more, but I must say, it has nice, confident lines. It is in colour, and it in pen. :)

That's REAL visual poetry... not what I was expecting, but awesome all the same!

I can't do like this, I get caught up in the structures of the poem and lose sight of the visual....mine tend to be a bunch of words stuck to a picture. :blush:

Well done!! :clap:

An interesting concept indeed, I like the colors, the shading and the typography suits it all very well. I hope you post more of this book, I haven't shared my work with anyone else so far and it always makes me curious when people doing that.

Thanks man. I don't know if she still wants to do the book with me, but if she doesn't, it will just become my sketchbook. But either way, I'll be sure to keep posting pages from it. Thanks for the encouragement.
