Self knowledge

Pencil and Photoshop.  50 x 70 cm.
This illustration is one of the 6 illustration i'm making for a book that's about people who struggle with all kind of addictions. When i thought about self-knowledge i had to think about knowing yourself really good in your life, which decisions you should make, which not, that's why the figure is holding a book with brains on it. You can imagine it's a map or something where he looks at with his laserglasses.  I chose to use owls, because they are sybolism for wisdom. If he walks the ground lights up with every step, just like the movie clip from Michael Jackson (which i think is very cool). The illustration is darker than the other ones but i think it's better for the concept.
