Looking inward

So, another illustration for one of Danny's haikus... You can read a bit more about the project in this previous post

This is the next haiku I chose to illustrate...

Do we all forget?
Being happy is an end
To looking inward.

As is my way, I decided to take the idea somewhat literally, and created an instructional diagram which demonstrates how to look into your heart. Haikus are quite an interesting form of poetry, because they're so open to interpretation... so maybe I've taken it in entirely the wrong way, but that's part of the fun of the project I guess.

I started by drawing a heart...

For a while I thought it might be nice in red, but I changed my mind.

And then some BIG LOUD ARROWS. Look inwards, you see.
