In these illustrations, animals and humans strip their shells and emerge in a new ebony silhouette. I have always loved the idea of shedding or molting as a mechanism of renewal, so I combined "O sweet spontaneous" with these images and it felt like a perfect match.
Because I adore working with ink and pattern, the project was enjoyable and gave me a feeling of renewal.
