Too busy to do a new piece for this week's theme, so I submit a book cover I did a while back.
I've done several pieces that use reflections as a metaphor for other things, but that seems too easy. Here, I chose a piece whose lack of reflections tells the story...the main character has died and is reflecting upon his wasted life, but as you can see, there are no reflections in the water, just a bottomless abyss that represents the void that his death has left in the lives of his friends and family.

"Knowledge speaks, wisdom listens"- Jimi Hendrix
wise_ jimi
I never thought of Jimi Hendrix as being exceedingly wise, but as I was looking around for inspiration for this "wisdom" theme, I stumbled upon this quote from him, and it struck me as being one of the most sublime definitions of wisdom I'd ever heard. Who knew?...maybe all those psychedelic drugs did help him find enlightenment, after all.

This image came to me immediately when I learned the theme was "empty". I did a few quick sketches in my usual realistic style and it just didn't work. So, I tried this simplified vector style, and it seems to have the right feel for this image.
