Unraveling – Spot illustration; Graphite and digital
I created this piece as a spot illustration assignment for an article on the new push to fully map the entirety of the human brain. I went through a few other ideas to final illustration to before getting here and this ended up being the one piece I was most happy with out of that set.
Brain issues are always of interest to me, with so many veterans suffering from debilitating emotional distress and disorders, this image hits home further than just the article. It’s a gnarled mess that is nearly impossible to untangle and make sense of. The focus of which will be slowly unraveling the complexities one by one until we’ve finally built up our understanding enough to have a full view of just how it’s all put together.
