This project focuses on dismantling the preconceived ideas people have about chronic pain. There are seven images in the series and they were created using Adobe Fresco on the iPad. The illustrator uses a lot of symbolism in the artwork. E.g. the fox and the rabbit, the foxes represent family and how they slowly come out of the grass to give their full support to the chronic pain sufferer. The silhouettes represent how we often see things in black and white. The pattern that appears, covers only the make believe and leaves what’s real exposed.
