February 12, 2016 Matt Canning creates illustrations each issue of Habitus Living Magazine, Indesign Media Asia Pacific. This set was for anÂ article about the relationship between the masterÂ and the apprentice, and one of theÂ examples used was the sushi chef. “This is the theme I wanted to focus on here. The hand with the chopsticksÂ represents the sushi teacher, and the moths the students. IÂ liked the idea of the teacher being a light that draws the students in, and theÂ lightbulb being a recognisable symbol of genius. The moth on the light switch suggests that the teacher/master’s ability to impart his knowledge is dictated to by the ability of his students.”
