Week Word: Unity

John at The Healing Seed chose our word this week: Unity. Do visit him to see who else is playing and what they've come up with.

It's clearly true that wedding planning takes over your life a bit, as the idea I kept coming back to when thinking about unity was marriage. Particularly the tradition of handfasting, where the couples hands are tied together to symbolise their commitment and partnership.

I didn't want anything too sentimental or romantic for my image though, as unity also seems like a very powerful word; by uniting, you create something stronger than the separate parts.


  1. Lovely sketch and the tradition of handfasting is really neat. I think your sketch felt powerful, almost like a Union propaganda poster from the 1940's.
