Illustration friday: 100%


This was a previous illustration for the UTNE Reader about a woman who had a scar since early childhood. After making the decision later in her 30s to have it removed, she felt as though a small part of her identity had been taken away, thus making her feel not complete. Sometimes it is our imperfections that make us whole.

Love the hand coming out of the mirror to touch the arm.

I thought your name sounded familiar - I just checked Fiona's Luck out of the library. I love the textures you used and the muted colors. Congrats on your books!
