Honored to have placed third at the fifth annual Judeica Show this year! Many thanks to the Hillells of the Florida Suncoast for hosting the event.
This year the theme was, The Book of Numbers. It felt nice to take some time and do some reading and research for this piece.
It is said that Aaron’s rod, was made of an almond branch, and upon his appointment as resurrected High Priest, his rod budded and flowered, as a sign that he was chosen to lead the generations forward.
The almond tree is a progressive symbol in the Jewish faith of new life and new beginnings. As it’s amongst the first to bloom and awaken from winter’s sleep, I noted strong parallels with the new generation of Israelites who awaken in faith and new leadership to move their people forward to a better life.
I read Neil Gaiman’s “Ocean at the End of the Lane” this summer, and It completely got me back into reading.
This is my interpretation of one of the “Hunger Birds,” the willfully aggressive, world devouring varmints. When something is out of hand, or out of place, they devour.
They are the Cleaners.
The image of them was so clear to me, that I couldn’t help but try to put it on paper.
I also read that Focus Features will be adapting this story into a film that will be produced by Tom hanks and directed by Joe Wright. I would very much love to be a part of that.
My name is Audrey, and I’m a 21-year-old Illustrator/Designer from Michigan. |
I grew up in a small town next to a cemetery, where no one ever told me what I couldn’t do. Being an illustrator came as a natural bi-product of making my self-discovery into a visual experience.
I currently work in Florida and study at Ringling College of Art and Design. I enjoy problem solving in all aspects of life; especially in character designing, illustrating, painting, and experimenting in my sketchbook. Through my work, I’ve developed a fondness for all things bizarre and beautiful, and always strive to stay curious.
