Colored pencil. Design submission for the 2017 Beechwood Street Painting Project in Rochester NY.
Illustrating the concept of mutual symbiosis in urban communities. Neighborhoods and cities are examples of symbiotic relationships that have the potential to be successful and sustainable. Both the city itself and individual citizens reap benefits when we all work together and build off one another's skills and offerings.
The imagery of plants and nature growing off of a turtle's shell relate the idea of social/economic symbiosis to the same systems that take place in nature.
