22”x19” black charcoal on gray paper
Drawn from observation. The project was to draw your family as inanimate objects that describe them, and who they are to you. My mother is a book of prayers because she is very religious. She is also underneath the rest of my family because she is our support system. My sister is a banana because she is very shy, and you don’t get to fully know her, until you peel away and get through her exterior. My father is a bra because he is extremely over-protective and constricting, and sometimes, just plain annoying. But, also like a bra, he’s the most supportive of me, and my dreams.
