I created this illustration as a personal work for a real article published on The New York Magazine, titled “A Positive Outlook May Be Good for Your Health”, about the relationship between a positive mindset and well-being. The author illustrates how a positive outlook can have a positive effect on physical health and how important is to cultivate a feelgood mindset.
For my illustration, I focused on the idea of “positive outlooking” and I played around with the images that came to my mind. I liked the analogy with the sunflower, which is a joyful flower, always looking at the sun. I also played with the idea of cultivating positive thoughts and the use of botanical elements to recall health.
