"Beauty will save the world." - Fyodor Dostoevsky
Out of context, it would be easy to dismiss this quotation as hopelessly naive. But for Dostoevsky, "beauty" is what inspires the best in us, our aspirations for what is good and true, what connects us to each other. In this illustration, we wanted to capture a sense of individuals connecting to a whole that is greater than the parts. Points of light suggest a globe at sunrise, then connect through sunrise into the shape of a magnolia flower.
