Taking the Leap

Using the app ibisPaint X on her iPad, sophomore Shelby Lewis created the featured image above. She used a variety of tools and techniques including a watercolor brush, a round brush, and a dip pen in order to create texture. She saw a music video on Instagram that had the original image, and she was inspired, due to its metaphorical capacity, to use the image in order to create her own creative version of the symbol. To her, it means “taking the leap, sometimes in life, you have to plunge into the unknown.”
