The Artist Behind The Hearts
Creating this collection of artistic human heart drawings required a lot of thought. These ideas came from thinking about what makes the human heart metaphorically speaking.
All of the anatomical hearts are abstract art pieces done with a line drawing technique I made my own as an artist. The human heart is delicate and each of the illustrations represent a different state of the heart.
I did not want the images to be conventional of the human heart.
Below are the human heart artworks I created with a felt pen, makers and some with the use of digital painting.
The Royal Heart
This heart is an illustration representational of luxury and the elegant class of individuals who are still among us on this planet. There are not as many kings, and queens as there once were. The royal families in England, as well as Princes in the Middle Eastern countries, are about all that’s left of modern day royalty in a traditional context.
The Luxurious Heart Art Piece In The Series
I believe in the contemporary day celebrities, popular public figures and living idols are the new kings and queens. I do not quite see every star as royalty, but I do see them as a luxurious bunch.
Not everyone who has a lot of money or wealth is publically known; in some way, their power and private lifestyle make these even more fascinating because their lifestyles are not based on popularity and flaunting their wealth.
Purple and gold have long been known also to be associated with royalty alongside the color green. This idea is my main reason for applying these colors in the artwork on the “Royal Heart”. This illustration and human heart drawing is another symbol of luxury as well as well in my collection of heart drawings.
The Pride Heart
The “Pride Heart” is the heart of the LGBT community. I created this heart because everyone is entitled to love who they want to and be affectionate with the one they love. Although we are in the year the 21st century, many parts of the world deem it illegal for same-sex interaction, never mind marriage and partnerships.
A Human Heart of Hope and Unity
The majority of the countries on this list are highly influenced by religion and have harsh laws when it comes to homosexuality.
On June 26th of 2015 marked a historic date in the United States, where the Supreme Court ruled that the act of discriminatory, anti-gay marriage bans across the country violated the Constitution. This ruling has changed history in the States, but there are many more marks that need to happen overseas.
A lot of the LGBT community strong supporters helped fight for the equal rights to dismantle the discrimination against same-sex couples. This issue has gone in debate and judged for decades.
This artwork is intended to represent hope, love, unity and support for the idea that love is love. A person should be able to be affectionate with whoever they please. When we say that it shouldn’t be that way, in return we are saying there should be no freedom.
The Bold Heart Illustrations
Dress to Be Confident
It has been said when you look better; you feel better as a person. Dressing accordingly in the right clothing and accessories to suit your industry and lifestyle will make you feel good. This is a simple way to boost confidence in yourself.
It has also long been said that first impressions matter when you are going to a job interview, and I believe the same is relevant for business meetings and individual success. There is nothing wrong with having your style and signature looks, but remain professional in your appearance and good things will come from it.
Speak with confidence
One of the ways to develop your voice and tone when speaking in public is by listening to your favorite speaker… If you don't have a favorite speaker, there are many great public speakers you can search. One of my favorites is Tony Robbins and the late Dr. Wayne Dyer. These are to speakers and motivational speakers I’ve learned much from in the past four years after really diving into their teachings.
Learn to be assertive with your voice without coming across as too aggressive. People will tend to listen to you with a more attentive ear when you voice capture their attention.
Always Think Positive
Something like this is very simple but very powerful. Training yourself to become an optimist is possible. I believe it takes time, creating a healthy environment for yourself and maybe finding new friends/colleagues while letting go of the ones that have had an adverse impact on your life.
“Bird of a feather flock together”… Although your best intention may be to inspire others and those that may have been somewhat less fortunate than you, the more time you spend with someone that is not productive, have no vision or attract negativity themselves, you may find yourself behaving or hurt by them.
So surround yourself with like-minded individuals. Don’t let failure consume you, but see failure as a lesson to learn from to not repeat the same mistake.
Make Things Happen
Lastly, make things happen. Certain things you cannot do all by yourself and need a mentor to help you and guide you. You may even need to build a team of individuals willing to work with you to achieve your goal. However, if you have a goal and mission don’t sit on it, but act on it.
You may have noticed that a lot of the hearts have accents of gold in them. The main reason is because I believe the value put on gold is unfair. A lot of people cannot afford to buy gold, but our hearts are so much more valuable... Yet sometimes others overlook us.
I have another art series that was birthed from this idea call the Royalty art series. Take a look at it here (The Gold and Black Royalty Series ).
This illustration from the heart illustrations is truly dear to me.
Music is in everyone’s heart. Music moves everyone’s heart, and music touches each and every one of us differently. Music has been used as a tool and art to teach as well as raise awareness regarding certain cultural issues.
Many musicians in the past have contributed to breaking barriers and influencing a large body of people.
Music Inside My Heart
One of the biggest names that come to mind was Michael Jackson. Michael was loved by many but shun by quite a few people after the skin color change occurred. Michael was a voice that traveled the world with his music.
Michael Jackson's Influence Through Music
I recall growing up as a child in Haiti knowing his music and singing English words before even learning the language. At the time I did not know what I was singing, but I know Michael Jackson’s music, and the Jackson 5 touched my heart.
I created the “musical heart” as one of the illustration in this 15 piece series because of my deep passion for music as well. Between 2009 and 2016 I’ve released over 50 recorded and written songs online for free and one song published on iTunes, Spotify, and various other sources.
All in all, I love music almost as much as I love art. However, came to the realization that art was what I wanted to wake up every day in my life willing to do. Writing music and creating music is another form of artistic expression that I enjoy, so much that I always find myself incorporating it into my art.
Ludwig van Beethoven once said, “Music can change the world.” Indeed, music has changed my world. I do not know what every day in this world would be like without music to listen to.
The Melanin Heart
Black beauty and this rise in melanin adoration/obsession inspired me to create this heart drawing. Melanin itself is the dark brown to the black pigment in the human skin, hair as well as the iris of the eye in both people and animals. It attributes to the tanning of skin due to exposure to sunlight.
Some things to know about Melanin are that it is capable of absorbing a significant amount of energy and doesn’t produce a high amount of heat when it absorbs energy. Dermatologist and Dermatopathologist Dr. Leon Edelstein have stated that melanin can absorb a variety of types of energy that surrounds both you and I. These forms of energy include energy from sun rays, x-ray machines, and energy that is formed within cells during the metabolism of cells.
Freckles that occur in many people of many different races are small concentrated areas that melanin has an increase in its production.
The drawing also has implied elements which attribute to African culture and a symbol of the Ankh. This symbol represents many things. In the Egyptian hieroglyphic characters, it reads “eternal life” and serves as a powerful symbol created by the Ancient Egyptian Africans.
The Ankh the past:
The Ankh have a universal association to material things such as water, the sun, air and well as the divine connection with the gods. Over time it’s become a symbol of life (mother, father, and child) and immortality, with encouraged belief that it is capable of unlocking the gates of death. The symbol is widely seen in many Egyptian arts in the art history of Egyptians.
More modern interpretations reference the symbol to biology as an identifier of the female, the element copper, the planet Venus, and representation of the female womb.
What is the origin of the Ankh?
The root of the Ankh is still uncertain, but it has many meanings and is used by others for a lot of purposes. This is the universal symbol of the “Melanin Heart”. Melanin is something that is not the most prevalent in cultures throughout the world but is essential in all of us. The rise in awareness as well as the understanding of the symbol of the Ankh, as well as melanin, has climbed.
Visually Creating The Melanin Heart
The colors chosen for this human heart drawing were thought about, and the implied gold was to make the heart drawing richer in value. Visually, I think the combination of the black lines makes the artwork more appealing for the viewers.
The "Melanin Heart" is also a symbol of confidence.
Of course, many things come into play in building confidence as a human being. Below are some points I put together I believe essential to helping any individual that is willing and wanting to build self-confidence.
These points are:
- Act confident
- Dress boldly
- Speak with confidence
- Always Think Positive
- Make Things Happen
Body language in many cases is a universal language to those who are aware of it and understand human body gestures and signals from body language well. This is one of the primary things in every individual that signal boldness and belief in oneself or can show proof of insecurity in someone.
Your presentation to others shows them whether you believe enough in yourself. My brother told me once “why would anyone believe in you enough to invest in your ideas if you are not willing to invest in your ideas.” I first thought that this statement made no sense whatsoever, but it hit me.
People who are entrepreneurs and independent business owners took risks to get to the success that they have. Investing in yourself is sacrificing certain things and creating time for the things you want to accomplish and be successful at. Your money or the small things you spend your money on also can be an investment in yourself if properly managed and spent accordingly.
Acting confident will eventually help you begin to feel in control of your destiny in some way, this will help you make a better judgment on decisions you need to make, and others will become confident in you as well as belief in what you have to offer. This is an idea that can be applied to many things.
Something as simple as how you sit and your posture can significantly impact how you feel and how others also perceive you. A firm handshake, good eye contact, and great posture with whom you are exchanging words with.
So, key thing is to change your body language; your smile, speech, posture and eye contact are all factors that greatly impact your body language. Simply pulling your shoulders back can demonstrate that you are a confident person to the person you are engaging with. Smiling loosen you up, eye contact keeps you focused on each other, speaking slowly imply calmness and control.
The “Geometric Heart” was created with the thought of illustrating a structured heart. The artwork was formed freehand without a ruler. However, it is the most straight human heart artwork that I’ve created in the series of heart illustrations.
There are a lot of sharp points, geometric shapes, and straight lines that make up the ever-changing direction in the heart drawing. Two of the most visible and recognizable elements in this piece is a keyhole and the stairway.
The Drawing Elements:
Each element in the drawing represents something relating the human heart. Creating symbolic are is not always subjective, but including certain visual elements others are familiar with make the art a bit more comprehensive.
I would say most of the fellow artists I know don't care about these kind of things. It's all about the creative process and journey for them. However, I think if we ever want to create meaningful art we have to consider these things. We have to think of these ideas and how they could be incorporated in our work.
Intention of The Heart Visually:
The intention is not always subliminal and deliberate in my line art drawings. However, I guess I can describe the representation of this human heart art piece as sharp and enigmatic.
Our Secretive Hearts:
In the artwork there is a key hole. The Key hole in this illustration represents the locked part of the heart. The secured parts being the secrets we keep. As human beings we tend to hide our pain and the hidden parts of ourselves, that we never want explore ourselves. We hide who we truly are to others.
Stairway through the Heart:
In yellow and black is a stairway leading into the lower parts of the heart. This artwork could is visual poetry. The pathway to the heart of an individual is complex and in this art piece, the stairway surrounded by complex elements as well as objects.
There is a subtle sense of danger because of all of the sharp points in the heart grouped around the center of the heart. Although the anatomical heart is not exactly how the human heart is in our bodies, it is close enough visually that when viewers see the heart, it’s recognizable.
The “Transparent Heart” features a lot of similar elements to the “Precious Heart”. This heart was illustrated to be a symbol of the genuine people we encounter in life. There are a lot of deceiving and not very truthful we run into in life, but those of us that are transparent hearted will always rise even if abused along the way.
Why Having A Transparent Heart A Good Thing?
The “Transparent Heart” is important because by being genuine you also get to attract and meet other real people who share similar visions and ideas. I also created this romantic couple art series, if you like this heart you probably will enjoy that collection as well.
This human heart colored drawing originally was going to be kept black and white, but I became a fan of applying color to the heart drawings that I was creating and decided to add various tones and hues to the art piece.
An Illustration of The Delicate Human Heart
The “Coffee Heart” was illustrated simply because at the time I created the piece I consumed a lot of the coffee. I guess you could say that coffee was on my mind and in my heart.
Coffee is a universal food in every culture. The use of coffee varies as well in different cultures. Coffee in almost every family home throughout the world of those that enjoy a good cup of joe.
According to Medicine Hunter, more than 400 billion cups and counting of coffee are consumed every year.
Human Heart Art Inspired by My Love For Coffee
Within the Chinese medical-dietary system, both coffee and the green been are classified as a herb that balances the liver and provides strong energy stimulation. Coffee purges the gallbladder and promotes urination.
Above of all, coffee is the best thing in the world. Although, some individuals still don’t like coffee. Learn more about the science of coffee at the Institute for Traditional Medicine.
Again why would I not incorporate coffee into my art? It is one of the most loved foods/beverages in the world. I have created quite a few art line art pieces that I incorporated coffee cups or the bean into.
5 Reasons to Love Coffee
- Did you know coffee can help you burn fat?
Caffeine to many is considered a drug, but it is found in many as well as the most commercial fat burning supplement. Unlike a lot of chemically compounded substances, caffeine is one of the few natural remedies that have scientifically proven to help in the fat burning process. It helps boost the metabolic rate in the human body.
- Did you know coffee can help lower your risk of getting Type II Diabetes?
Type II diabetes has affected many people… roughly 300 million people throughout the world and the number continue to grow. One of the factors that contribute to type II diabetes is the rise in blood sugars in the context of insulin resistance. Studies conducted have shown that people who drink the most coffee (4 or more cups a day) have a 23-50% lower risk of diabetes. The studies came from 18 different case studies with a total of 457,922 individuals.Science researchers credit the antioxidants Chlorogenic acid and other elements to boosting cells’ sensitivity to insulin... this causes a regulation in blood sugar.
- Coffee serves as an anti-depressant and makes people happy.
I am sure you have met a person that is accustomed to having their morning coffee without it… They often look either miserable, like they near 1,000 more years of sleep like they are Dracula, and or a bit upset.Depression is considered a mental disorder, which I did not know until I did this research about coffee. Depression also reduces the quality of life for some individuals. About 4.1% of individuals in the U.S. meet the criteria for clinical depression, this is a scary thought. That’s a range of 13-20 million people calculated from the population census from 2014-2016.
Coffee Could Someone’s Life
In another study individuals who drank 4 or more cups per day were 53% less likely to commit suicide, a link to depression (5). Michel Lucas, Ph.D. mention that caffeine provides boosts in energy as well as emotional feeling in the release of feel-good serotonin.
- Those who drink coffee have lower risks of certain types of cancer.
One of the leading causes of death throughout the world is cancer. Coffee helps prevent liver cancer and colorectal cancer. This is not saying that coffee will heal or keep someone from getting cancer, but like exercising and eating the food, we should be eating it contributes good things for the human body.
Liver cancer is the third leading cause of cancer death in the world followed by colorectal cancer? Well, Coffee Drinkers have up to 40% lower risk of getting liver cancer. This is another reason why drinking coffee is good for you.
- Lastly Coffee Increases Longevity
Yes, coffee helps bring some balance in health and have some pretty good benefits as you can see thus far. The sweetest part now aside from the raw bitter tastes of coffee with no sugar is that it could help you live a longer life. Observation studies were also conducted to support these claims.
Data says that there is a 20% lower risk of death in adult men as well as a 26% lower risk of death in women, over a period of 18-24 years drinking coffee. In a study, diabetics who drink coffee had a 30% lower risk of death during a 20 year period.
Poem: "Heart Made of Roses"
Heart made of roses I send you my condolence,
I know you went through much heartache, so I offer to consul you;
Heart made of roses I write these words not to mislead you,
When the thorns grew out of you I know it must have been real painful;
Falling for many other hearts left you in a state of confusion,
Don’t know which one to choose so you run to me with love in delusion;
Was only there to help your heart beat,
Still, you have allowed others to make your heart weak;
Heart made of roses “I love you” I can no longer utter,
What we had have fallen at its time of latter;
"Heart Made of Roses" was first published on Kenalsworld in 2012. Since then I've been updating the blog and it's gone through many changes in identity.
