This editorial illustration is inspired by the saying “you reap what you sow”. The theme is introduced by an imaginative motif which represents the creative nature of man. By means of symbolic, somewhat surreal imagery, the illustration promotes the message that our spirits and intellect need to be watered, fed and taken care of like plants in order to grow. The graphic entanglement of the human figure with the patterned background further emphasises the links between man and nature.
