St Patrick's College's Lenard Taylor shares a spark of hope amid a lack of passion in his piece Heartless for SHOUT, The Courier's online youth platform.
Heartless is about the loss of passion or heart when something that is usually a hobby or leisure activity is transformed into something forced.
In this case, it's my drawings losing the heart and soul being put into it as a deadline approaches. There is a lack of inspiration.
This picture was inspired by the concept of hope.
During these pandemic times, it's hard to keep up hope for everyone's safety.
This also inspired the heart; while it could be interpreted in many different ways, it could symbolise hope, or the destruction of it. The lack of motivation. The lack of passion. It could also be the light that keeps morale high.
It may be completely different, it's all up to the viewer.
