Untying my fears

Prompt: For my Integrative seminar class, we had to create an Artist’s Book. Following a book-making workshop, we had to compose a brief text to accompany the illustrations. The text could be a children's story, a journal entry, a poem we’ve composed, an artist’s statement, or a manifesto.

‘Untying my fears’, is a mixed media writing and illustration project that depicts two perspectives of my artwork. I created a ‘Must do list’ and fears both on either side of the book as I wanted to convey how I can only complete the list once I get over those fears. The threads on the fear side of the book represent my fears and how I must “untie” them in order to let myself loose.
