Illustration // Monday, 22 Jul 2013
1

Based in Tucson, AZ, Laura Hines is an illustrator with a background in natural science illustration and a fascination for all things macabre and cadaverous, in particular the royal mummies of ancient Egypt. Their presence in the modern world affords an intimate human link to the mysterious past, as well as the ability to look upon their features and see parts of ourselves in their reposed expressions. From the leathery surface of the skin to the most delicate stroke of a still extant eyelash, Hines portrays these cherished archeological relics as individual people, each projecting a unique spirit and prevailing vitality never lost through the ages.
