For my graduate show, the theme is 'The end is the beginning', as we all finish the course but start our creative journey. In all my pieces I have used some animals, a koi, fawn, rabbit, fox and sometimes a cat and or bird. These animals fit together like a puzzle with a girl's face emerging.
I have used several symbols with the meaning 'the end is the beginning' and each picture has a lotus representing that through mud and struggle, something beautiful can emerge.
This is a rough sketch and while quite different from my final images in the exhibition, it is like the front cover of the story that is about to follow.
