This piece merges two concepts I will be expanding on in 2016: aesthetic and descriptive. The idea illustrated here describes the creation of a park. This public garden/park is composed of dramatic looking weeping evergreens (my favorite tree). Each bubble talks about the trees, the layout and suggestions for the creation of the park. As the piece is made to hang on a wall like the painting, I aimed to make it decorative as well. This painting was originally created for Blueprint for the Future, an art show I coordinated in 2015 where students came up with and illustrated public works projects they wanted to see in their town.
