Short Lived - Social Artwork

I enjoy creating work that tells a story or communicates a message,
especially in response to a social topic.  
Since I possess a graphic design background it makes sense that much of my artwork would be about communication. 
This art book tells a short story and makes a point (though not obvious).
 This is one of my newest ink drawn creations.  It measures only 3.5 x 3.5 inches.  
The story is about creation and destruction...specifically an aborted life.
The way that I created the binding was also inspired by my graphic design experience.
It wraps around the book and is secured with a paper clasp.
The abstract shapes are characters that grow and change throughout.

I like that it is not too obvious, but once you see what is going on there is little doubt about there being a sad ending even if the issue of abortion is not picked up on.

The entire book will be back in my blog after the show opening.
