Illustration project for SVA senior portfolio class with Steve Brodner.
Published:
This is the second piece created in my senior portfolio class at SVA with Steve Brodner. The challenge was to create a piece incorporating 'my guardian angel', or a guardian spirit. The technical challenge I created for myself was to achieve order and emphasis on the main character by using value and color to my advantage.

I chose a Chinese dancing lion as the guardian spirit--the character in the illustration is affected by the festive and cheerful spirit of the lion and lives out a beautiful life in New York City.

I also had a lot fo fun creating the environment and the foreground characters.
