Andrea Ucini ponders barriers to success in his illustration of a climber observing a distant snow-capped peak. Ucini poses the question: ‘Are we our own biggest barrier to success?’
Self-doubt, and a lack of support from those closest to us, may play a critical role in achieving goals.
Ucini’s illustration shows a sole figure with backpack alone in the mountains
considering his next climb. Using a neutral palette and showing a figure dwarfed by the landscape around him, Ucini conveys the magnitude of the climber’s challenge.
