My project seeks to explore the nature of storytelling, survival, and symbolism through the lens of the winged. I illustrate this through the language of oracle cards by using birds and arthropods as subjects to express these more nuanced themes and ideas. While there are a variety of symbols hinted at within each card, the uniting factor is how they function together, a manner of telling a story through otherwise independent, unique drawings. Also touched on in this project is the manner in which an observer might experience art, as seeing art with one's eyes is far different from the feeling of paper in your hands. While exploring my artwork, I encourage the viewer to notice how the images depict the animals interacting with each other and their environment in tandem with how the cards interact as a visualization of a journey's path.
