East of Eden

I am extremely allergic to all plants and shrubs related to poison ivy, so much that I almost always have to go to the doctors for a gross prednisone pack; my body just loves rashes and I would never survive in the wild. However, the symmetry found in these plants make beautiful and alluring patterns. I designed this particular cover with paper cut outs of poison sumac. The delicate pattern contrasts with the sumac's potential danger much like Cathy in East of Eden.
