I did this for Carmannah Boutique in British Columbia. They had me do a few designs featuring native wildlife and folktales.
This is sort of a response to some health problems I was having over spring and early summer this year.
After a long flight, I had chronic dizziness for over a month so I went in to see my doctor. After a few visits, they found an unrelated issue. I had been having terrible back pain during the night, and was ignoring it as untreatable back pain. Turns out that I have been living with and inflamed and clogged gall bladder for over two years. I had surgery to have my gall bladder removed in July, and my health is so much better now for it. 120% of what I used to be.
I was working on this piece throughout this whole ordeal, and I hope that some of that shows though, albeit symbolically.
