Bruce Mackay's 'The Love Between You and I'

Illustration // Thursday, June 13, 2013
South African artist Bruce Mackay created this beautiful melancholic series in dark monochrome for a visual article about music the artist loves. Based on the Attack in Black's 'The Love Between You and I,' Mackay explains-- 'I have always felt a sense of longing in Attack In Black's music. A mix of sadness and anger over loss and a subtle feeling of hope that comes out of it. I've interpreted it with a series of drawings that narrate the emotions I get from their music. Lost youth and missing friends and the hope that you might get those things back one day, that things are not lost, that decay can be reversed.'
