…..I see the curve of the dam, sparkling in the late winter sunshine; the scattering of snow; feel the breath catch in my throat. Think of Jack.
Jack: childhood friend, who fixed my bike more times than I could remember, before I uttered those foolish words…..
THE ILLUSTRATION BRIEF
Jack is Sarah’s childhood friend and he’s always been there for her throughout the
years. They’ve always tiptoed around each other romantically, but is the time right now?
This will be a montage image. We see Sarah (mid 20s) sitting in her living room at an easel painting.
The other part of the image is Jack (the same age) standing beside a river looking thoughtful.
