A Luminous Warmth Seems to Enfold Me
An illustration for Allen Brewer’s Concepts and Metaphors class based on the life of Helen Keller. When I started working on this piece I struggled trying to encapsulate her entire life in a single piece, finding it difficult to tackle all the incredible things she’d done. Towards the end of the sketching process though, I slowly found myself drawn to the way she’d written about her experiences sailing and canoeing. You can read about those experiences, as well as her entire autiobiography, for free courtesy of the American Foundation for the Blind here.
