Diabetes, A Southern Tradition

Diabetes A Southern Tradition

A Mural for an Alumni Show at UNF

I was commissioned by Jim Draper to produce a mural for “Beyond the Degree.” This show of UNF alumni was meant to depict the future for art students at the university. Coming form the Fine Arts Department with a concentration in graphic design and digital media, I was excited to employ the craft I learned at school for creative expression.

The concept for the mural started as a joke. The phrase was later expanded with the commercial aspect of diabetes being integrated into the faux broadside ad. The photograph of the woman embracing the blanket to her check symbolizes the comfort we find in beverages and food made with processed sugars.
