This is oddly fitting, since for many reasons I had been delaying posting this piece since I made it on April - and remembering today is the anniversary of the bombing in Hiroshima, I decided to stop doing so.

This is my portfolio's "main piece", for lack of a better term. It is my interpretation of Miyoko Matsubara's testimony of what happened that morning. I came across it while doing a research on the bombing, and shocked me so I decided to try and illustrate it.

I used two medium to try and capture the feeling of what happened, and create a more intense 'before' and 'after' with the color palette. They're meant to be viewed in sequence, so perhaps we could try and define them as a Colored Storyboard.

A video of Miyoko Mitsubara's testimony can be found here.
