*Note of the Cover Art:

Missing Pieces

Visually, this piece took inspiration from the minimalist vector art that I grew up surrounded by, which has the potential to allow the viewer to envision more detail in a simplistic but artistic display. The concept was brought about by what I see as a critical need for intercultural communication in our era of global interconnectivity.
