A collection of spot illustrations for the University of Toronto’s Medical Magazine Winter 2019 Issue. The images appeared in their “Quick Takes” section, where they each accompanied a unique story about someone’s own experience around death.
This piece is inspired by the experience of working through and growing past mental illness. New life can grow from past wounds and heal us in a way that leaves us completely new to how we were before these experiences. To represent this growth I used healing flowers such as chamomile and st. john’s wort. The red string that is thread throughout the hand represents a life line and shows that the hand connects to something greater. It is knotted and tangled in various places to represent the idea that life is never a straight path and can get messy along the way, but will always continue.
