Here's some recent illustration work for Deeply Rooted Magazine to accompany an article called, "Where's My Adventure?" The piece was about comparing our often mundane lives with the glamorous, exciting portrayals of other people's adventures that we see through social media. The writer shared about the good that God can do in the mundane parts of life, and finding adventure in the everyday.
Creative Director Meghan Caughill requested a collage-style illustration featuring faceless portraits and little details to portray the lives of different women. I loved the concept and chose to combine my three favorite techniques to create these images: pencil drawing, fabric collage, and stitching.
Meghan also incorporated some of my stitched lines into the final layout (see below). I really enjoyed working on this project - thank you to the Deeply Rooted team for including me in this issue!
