tranqui
(pen and photoshop brushes)

It's Illustration Friday time again.And the topic this time is tranquility.

The illo you see is a sketch that coincidentally I drew this week while waiting in a line at the bank.Well,actually it wasn't exactly a line,since this bank I went to is really big and they have some chairs so you can wait for your turn more comfortably.
However,if you look around,people's faces show very much stress and despair.It's a normal thing around here —in a big city anyway— but sometimes I wonder if all the people has suddenly forgotten how to relax and take a deep breath now and then.I mean,c'mon,it's not really that difficult and you get to live happier and in a more fun way.

And no,you don't need to run away to a remote place to relax and take it easy —if you want tranquility,then you have it.Life ain't that hard after all only if you want to.It's just like somebody said in that American Beauty movie:
It's hard to stay mad when there's so much beauty in the world...
Sometimes I feel that I'm seein' it all at once
and it's too much...
My heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst.
And then I remember to relax...and stop tryin' to hold on to it...
And then it flows through me...like rain...
and I can't feel anything but gratitude...
for every single moment of my stupid little life...

There —that's tranquility,I guess...
