This illustration is based on an article from Harper's Magazine, about a cancer patient in bed recalling food he had in the past and expressing his passion and obsession for food.


I choose to use subtle tonal differences & neutral colors to depict this melancholy but poetic story, and contrast the loneliness of the main character with juxtaposition of colorful food elements and patient in the bed.
