A quote rendered on scratch-board Assignment for Materials and Techniques 1

"Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future."
- John F. Kennedy

A scratch-board illustration to go with the quote on embracing the winds of change.
 
 

The natural progress of time was an important part of the quote;
I illustrated
a charging horse to provide that steady motion.

The act of
ignoring the future was demonstrated through
a fool riding the horse in
reverse.

To highlight his complete
oblivion to his impending downfall,
I used a
telescope to throw his attention further into the past.

Without a doubt, he suffers the
repercussions of his ignorance,
and plunges into the abyss of
failure.

Stars are a great symbol for the delusions of the past;
Their glows are  ghosts  of dead stars, reaching our eyes millions of years late.
