Parting evokes some of our best and worst memories.
In a literal sense, part could simply be to divide. While I first thought of parting my hair as a piece of possible cover art, I soon realized that this word fit in well with how I often felt. I struggle to let go of fleeting moments that are both fragile and beautiful, but recent events in my own households have only emphasized the need and importance for humans to move on. In this cover, my brother is centered as he had come to symbolize how quickly times have changed and loss of youth but also a parting with naïveté. Thank you for reading and this and please do check out the amazing work featured in It’s Real.
