below is cara's original version (posted here with her permission). it's so seamless and beautiful.

my friend cara is also doing a 365-project but hers is all about hands, and it is ah-mazing. i'm blown away by her creativity and dedication to the project. it's very inspiring. she allowed me to photograph a few pages that i wanted to use as inspiration that i could interpret differently for my own project. this was one of them. she had drawn an outline of her hand, a dove at its center and then created this seamless flow of lines throughout. i thought it was awesome. so, i tried to do something similar. the version below is photoshopped into black and white because i preferred it to the original colours i used, but i did a close-up of the coloured version just for record's sake.
