catharsis is organized into 7 chapters, each named after the 7 types of loves outlined by the greeks. the following illustrations served as cover pages for each chapter. i developed these ideas in collaboration with my co-author, dana farsakh, and transformed sketches into digital illustrations with adobe photoshop.
