'My Sister - My Hero' is about my sister. It shows my pencil and oil pastel drawing of her back against a copy of her actual x-ray. The x-ray is framed in a hard rectangle with metal staples holding it on there because she has metal holding her back together. My sister was my inspiration because she went through a lot to correct her scoliosis. I chose to do a cosmic background so that it is like a star. I have torn out a strip to show the metal because I am proud of her and the metal is her strength.
