Illustration Friday -'Gesture'
The Italians are famous for talking and moving their arms about at the same time. Most of the gestures they use do have a meaning or express a feeling. I have known people actually have a conversation using only gestures and facial expressions, they even use them when on the phone!
I've been behind cars when the driver is talking on his phone (not recommended and against the law) and what's worse.... he takes the other hand off the steering wheel to emphasise a point with a gesture!
This coloured pencil drawing is from several years ago but it fitted the theme well so I dug it out of my archives!
