Illustrations for the Chicago Reader Fiction Issue 2015

Had a lot of fun with this. The birds, letters and stars were actually cut out of black paper, which was then scanned.

With so much violence and chaos in the news, this was a quiet, personal response to the current state of things… Possibility and hope for tranquility and peace.
