New Illustration - iPad, Procreate, and Adonit Touch

Here's a new iPad/tablet based illustration I created recently. Working with my trusty Adonit Jot Touch stylus and Procreate app I worked up this little narrative piece that combines 3 photographs and some digital drawing/painting. Most of my work tends to show the figure and focus on the full body or the face; most likely because of my fascination with drawing facial expressions. But, with this one I wanted to create a narrative scene void of any faces or leading text. It certainly is a graphic scene, but it leaves the viewer to their own devices or vices in order to make assumptions and draw a conclusion as to what exactly is happening here. I dig ambiguity. Force-feeding meaning is about as useful as trying to break a 10 second sun-staring record.

If you have any thoughts on what is happening in this scene feel free to write them in the comment section below. I'd love to hear some interpretations :)
