Illustration Collaboration 9

In a series of posts, we are delighted to share the artworks that third year Edinburgh College of Art illustration students created in response to texts by our Citizen Writing Group.

Nourish by Marjory Taylor

It has been one of those mornings, starting with sleeping in and missing an appointment, and after a few other minor mishaps, culminating in a doorstep rampage from a woman trying to persuade me to join her religious sect to save my soul.

I am now sitting on a bench watching the sea lapping onto the shore. I think of all my ancestors looking at this same sea and in its unchanging ebbing and flowing, I am convinced that just by watching it and listening to the swish of the waves, they would have felt their souls being nourished, just as mine is.
