Mother's Day 2008 by Isaia Mother's Day 2008 by Isaia
Again this may be late but:

I remember when I was small, I would come to you when I was sad, and you would make me feel safe and warm.

I'm glad I can still come to you even if I'm no longer a little girl.
Even if some of my problems may be deeper and more painful.

I love you mommy.
I'm glad we planted those night flowers together.

Thank you.

This is so lovely. It really touches me. Especially because I was having a rough week of classes and stressing and my mom just sent me a surprise box of earrings with a note "just because I love you" on it. I feel a million times better. It is the luckiest thing in the world to have a place of peace in the storm. Thank you for illustrating that so well.

It reminds me of my mommy. :) (And we both enjoy gardening together too.)

Your mom had to have had a very warm heart after this... :)
GLfan Featured By Owner Dec 13, 2008
brilliant. so simplistic yet so poweful. a sketch in that coal style is the basic natural form of art. the relation ship between mother and daughter is the same. yet they are both very powerful and you captured that. bravo.

Made me a little teary actually XD

I love this comic, It reminds me of my mom. Me and her may argue but it shows blood is thicker than water....

It made me cry because now I realize I could lose my mom any day to her pulmonary hypertension.... But this comic shows me that I need to love her for the rest of the time she is here and cater to her needs....

I love this comic! INSTA FAVE!

Thank you very much.

We have to cherish our mommies.
I know because my mom also has high-blood pressure, and sometimes I worry about her, and what may happen if something occurs. :(

I agree... I hardly can sleep at night because I keep getting night terrors and they make me think that my mom has passed on and I go out there and I hear her voice and It takes EVERY thing in me not to break down and CRY

This makes me think of my own mom so much. Even if I don't get to see her every day, I just think of her hugs.
alaisiaga Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2008

the love of a mother is priceless.

Even though I've never met you, and probably never will, I don't think I'm alone in saying that through your art I feel like I do know you. You are so eloquent and confident in what you express, you say everything that I would want to say but am too shy or embarassed to. I've looked at your art a long time, and I just want to say thank you, and I hope that you are well.
SylverEyes Featured By Owner Jun 29, 2008
This is why everyone loves you. You can evoke such strong feelings with your art, because you actually feel those emotions while your drawing it. And it shows. So sweet and touching. :)

Eternity-Peregrine Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2008
This is truly a beautiful peice; the emotion you felt while creating it is very obvious and that is what makes it so special.

Whatever you've been through, I hope that you'll be alright. And though I'm not a close friend, I'm so glad that you had your loving, caring mother there to help you through it.

Wow this has so much heart in it it makes me cry. I remember seeing this days ago and I kept thinking about how sad it was.
Tokogawa Featured By Owner May 19, 2008
Your mother must be such a kind and caring woman. This is a beautiful work and I can see how you were ableto come to her throughout your life and still find comfort. The night flowers are amazing, the only color on black and white.

Joeseph-Warlock Featured By Owner May 15, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Isaia, wonderful goddess of art that you are, this is very beautiful, and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, just like the dedication to Iroh's actor, and the Disney artist. Your art always either makes me laugh or makes me divinely happy or makes me teary-eyed.

I love my mom too. :heart:

Oh, that's so beautiful! Glad to see you're still drawing!
Mutenroushi Featured By Owner May 15, 2008
so beautiful and full of emotion! <3 Great work!
whitedloud Featured By Owner May 15, 2008
I think your drawings convey feelings really well. I almost cried after looking at the light grey section. When the girl was holding her head in her palms and looked like she had absolutely no idea what to do ... I felt as though her feeling of helplessness/despair just transfered over to me through the images. It's great. I also think you portrayed the mother's pain too. When their children feel pain, mother feel pain and do everything they can to ease it.
eternalpuppy Featured By Owner May 14, 2008
Awh... :heart: Sweet! That's what I love about your work. Such heart. :hug:

I am always amazed at the depth of emotion you can put into your work. This piece is so beautiful and heartwrenching.

This is beautiful. :rose:
AKuwaNeKo Featured By Owner May 13, 2008
That look, the one in the sixth panel, feels to me like every time I've had to face something painful since I became an adult. It seems like life is all about suppressing those powerful emotions from here on out, and I hate it. Just looking at this, even though I don't know what it's about and couldn't guess, makes me think about all the bad things that have happened since I became an adult; all the times I just wanted to be a child again. And through all of that my mother was there for me too, and I know that she'll never expect me to hide those true feelings. I can always cry on my mother's shoulder. I think everyone should be able to. And yes, I am crying now too.
