Tracy Walker for St. Anthony Messenger

Tracy Walker illustrated this piece for an article entitled “Blood of Life” which appeared in the July 2012 issue of St. Anthony Messenger, art directed by Jeanne Kortekamp. The story is about a woman with leukemia whose life is saved by her newborn baby’s umbilical cord stem cells. With her delicate and yet graphic approach, Tracy weaves the story in a conceptual manner where colors, textures and symbols all speak to this very poignant story.
