An illustration created for TED X UCF - the theme this year being “Cut, Copy, and Paste” I wanted to highlight the most relevant form of mimicry in this day and age. 

MEMES.
I started with a rough composition sketch, refined the sketches, and then painted greyscale values. The next steps were to fill in the grey values with color, refine forms, add text, apply texture treatment and finish with final details.
