"Consider the lilies of the field whose bloom is brief:-- We are as they; Like them we fade away. As doth a leaf." -Christina Rossetti

This image was inspired by Coles Phillips' "Fadeaway Girls". His illustrations show the fabric portion of his images fading into the background, but still showing small details and the overall shape of the girl, because it is mostly just the color that blends into the background not many other elements overlap over that particular area. I focused specifically on having the person fade rather than the clothing because memories, relationships, and people fade much quicker than a garment of clothing. Instead on focusing on reworking a specific image of his, I chose to focus on the idea of fading away, whether into another world with a book or literally fading away into thin air.
