    This is an illustration that was done for the local non-profit, Page 15 and publisher, Burrow Press. Together they produced a compilation of written works from their the contest, The 5th Annual High School Writing Contest, called From Orlando With Love. Each story or poem was illustrated by a different local artist. "The Kitchen" was written by Rose Helsinger from Boone High School and tells the story of a pregnant dishwasher who wants a better life for her unborn child, but fears the continuation of the cycle of what has happened to her, her mother, and those that came before her. I utilized the spiral shape to communicate the perpetuation and used drastically different mediums between subject (a manipulated photo of an indigo-dyed pattern) and background (the repeating shapes of dishes drawn mechanically flat in Illustrator) to show a contrast between the self and the environment- what one can control and what is neat and tidy and what is out of control, what is messy and organic. You can purchase the book here: http://burrowpress.com/product/from-orlando-with-love/ Read Less
