a literary journal published by the Black Earth Institute dedicated to re-forging the links between art and spirit, earth and society
This art work is about self sustainability and returning to our roots of being growers and gatherers. In the modern world, we are so disconnected with our environment and the food we consume. My illustration is a bit of a nostalgia of the ways of the past where we were so involved spiritually and physically with the earth and life-giving forces. –Youheum Son
