Ana álvarez-errecalde‘s latest work, SIMBIOSIS/Symbiosis, shows a mother breastfeeding a child, linked at the hip. So integrated are these two beings, they are a single identity, that of Spider-Man.
Does a mother retain her self when she has a child? Is she so completely absorbed into the child’s world that she no longer has her own identity? Can she find a balance, or should she wait until the child is grown? Are mothers Superheroes?
Mothers of the world, how does this image speak to you?

I recently shared another piece of Ana’s artwork, Birth of My Daughter, which has been getting a lot of attention around the world. May her images continue to resonate in the hearts and minds of all who view them.
Marvel Entertainment is teaming up with New York City Comicon this coming weekend to help celebrate Spider-man’s birthday and has invited the Mayor of New York City to participate. Amazing Spider-man #700 (the “last” Amazing Spider-man comic?) is just around the corner too (see cover image above and lead-up video below).
Update: Oct 19. So many people contributed to a giant Spider-man birthday card at the NYCC that they’ve won a Guinness World Record!
