The Awakening by shoomlah The Awakening by shoomlah
A quickly drafted illustration of one of the more charged scenes from Kate Chopin's The Awakening- love is finally acknowledged. It's not necessarily my favourite piece in terms of the actual drawing, but it was backed by a very sincere emotional response to the novel and thus has its own sort of power and accuracy.
