About the Artwork:
“Dipping into the depths of space, she manifested many versions of herself to send into reality to deceive others.
The artwork has two layers, literally. I cut out the other faces from another sheet of paper and laid screen tone over top of that and carefully adhered them to their rightful places on the original drawing. I enjoy giving pieces different textures and layers. I think it also connects to the very short story because these faces are manifestations of different versions of herself, they’re not on the same plane of existence of her true self, or paper.” – Jessica Taylor
About the Artist:
I started drawing from a very young age, I always found it interesting but I never pursued it as a career option. Instead I found another love, architecture. So when it came time to pick my degree, it was no question I wanted an architecture degree and to become an architect. I felt like as time went on while studying my bachelors, I was neglecting a part of me that I couldn’t ignore anymore. I graduated and from that point on I decided to dedicate my time to developing my illustration and fine art skills. It’s been quite the journey but I’ve progressed significantly since then. I now plan to pursue a career in environment concept design. I feel as though it mends the two passions of mine, architecture and illustration into one.
