In the City was done as part of my personal project at the SVA Summer Illustration Residency. I decided to make a wordless book inspired by one of my favorite songs, The Gladdest Thing by Deb Talan (who also happens to be 1/2 of The Weepies, one of my favorite singers). I interpreted the song as being about hope, making connections, and finding beauty in everyday things, and it led me to this story. Check out the song here, it's lovely!​​​​​​​
For our exhibit, I made 3 watercolor paintings and a digitally-colored book dummy.
