Jennybird Alcantara's art is full of narratives and explorations of opposites. It is a great example of observing how beauty and cruelty can be merged together and prove that nothing would be the same in the absence of either. Her biggest inspirational moments agree so much with mine too; the state of semi-consciousness! It is such a great moment, and happens to me often before I sleep, when I'm sunbathing, or while I travel...

I really love the first illustration "Daughter of Icarus" brings to my mind the moments when my sister and I are taken apart by an airplane because we live in different countries :(
