  • Jamaican Myths & Tales
    Illustration for exhibition
  • Jamaica was the theme given to me for this illustration!
    So i decided to challenge myself even more! LOL
    I've started sketching with a pencil in a fabriano watercolor paper size A2 using as the backgrouns the myth of the cotton tree, half at night, half by day, illustration some of the myths and tales of the jamaican folklore.
    i've decided to use a very illustration look, with just a little bit of realism, giving my own interpretation to each character, creating my own tale of Jamaica, as a great tree that reaches the sky.
