ART: Sam Vanallemeersch Draws Sadness for You

These water colour-esque illustrations by Sam Vallanemeersch look like sad drawings out of a beautiful graphic novel. They are innovative, haunting and subversive in the best kinds of ways. Each picture tells a story of loss or heartache in some way. As connected as these images seem, they are, in a way, telling the story of disconnect between one and the world; between self and other. “Othering” here seems like a very common thought especially with the speech bubble in the first image reading: “I’ve never been in favour of the regular family structure.”
