Jessica created a mosaic of Isaiah Zagar. She noticed many figures in the Magic Gardens and chose to incorporate those as a portrait of the artist himself. One of the hands say on it, "dirty hands" because of how much work was required to create the mosaics of the gardens. The mosaic also has four hands to emphasize this same point. The face features lips and many words showing the thoughts that were put into Zagar's mosaics. His legs and feet also have words to show the places he goes. Jessica chose to put a passion flower as a representation of the genetalia, because she noticed that images of genetalia were prominent in the Magic Gardens. Her mosaic overall is colorful to reflect the vividness of Zagar's mosaics, which in turn are a representation of him.
