This strange interpretive illustration is loosely based on a dream a friend of mine sent me. We've been talking about collaborating for awhile now, and she just recently she sent me a little something to riff off of for a drawing.
She dreamt of creating small pink sculptures with rounded edges made out of bizarre tropical fruit. As the dream went on she came to protect a very small kitten - smaller than usual - shielding it from the cold icy outdoors. These two parts came together in my mind and made me think about how everything on earth that is born all start out looking alien but very similar. Everything is translucent and squishy and fragile - kittens, humans, tadpoles, tropical fruit.
