Common element

we-are-all-made-the-same-jessica-niggel

An entry for an illustration contest about embracing each other.

My approach to the topic of embracing differences is a little more scientific. I decided to draw two hands reaching out to each other connected by a DNA strand. I wanted to show that although the hands belong to two individuals, these individuals are not so different after all, since they share the same genetic makeup which links them and makes them one. No matter our opinions, race, gender, nationality, religion or sexual orientation; we are all human and made out of the same thing. We are connected, and ultimately not very different, thus should be accepting of one another.
