Educate yourself..

This art piece was for an eBook that was titled educate yourself. I just went for a straightforward “woman reading a book”. What made this piece special to me is that I experimented with an art style that’s supposed to give it a realistic, kinda movie like look. I think it turned out okay..

EBook cover art

This was an art piece I made for the cover of an upcoming eBook. Its about the love life of a high school student documented through her diary entries. So I tried to be as straightforward with this one as possible. I portrayed a young woman lying on an a field, with her diary next to her. I tried to capture a daydreaming “head in the clouds” look on the young woman’s face.

The power in dance.

In this piece I tried to capture the power in a simple dance. Its funny how dances like the waltz or tango, or any dance shared by two people really, manage to create memories that last a lifetime. How a simple holding of hands, a gentle shuffling of the feet, becomes stories parents tell their children, reasons people smile to themselves when nobody’s around. There’s nothing complex about dance, you don’t even have to really know how to do it, yet it manages to forge complex relationships. Such is its power, and its necessity in the world we live in.

I tried to give this piece a romantic realistic look. So i used brown undertones

Stage queen.

This was a piece of art I created called the stage queen. Inspired by a dancer I watched at the theatre. It depicts a woman who flourishes in the spotlight, who loves to captivate the audience anywhere she is, be it in a small room with thirty people, or a grand audience of thousands. She feels all the attention focused on her, she embraces it, and enjoys it. She finds happiness in the applause of strangers, in the wows of their lips, in the noise of their ovations and the awe in their faces. She may be anything else, anywhere else, but the stage is her domain, and she alone is queen.

Injustice

This was an illustration I did just to express myself a bit, to depict the state of things in my country, to silently gesture how a wealthy politician can tip the scales of justice in their favour. How with their vast wealth, they can guide the hands of lady justice, and bend her to their will. How they render her sword ineffective, and her scales unbalanced. This is wrong, but then again, its just me, expressing myself.

submerged.

This was an art piece I did to depict a “happy place”. Its the place everyone has in their lives where they go to forget all their worries and live in the moment. The piece depicts a young girl in a kind of underwater utopia. A place where she loses herself in the beauty of it all, a place where she is happy.

Although the concept is a happy one, I didn’t try to use too many bright colors, but just enough to get the message across.
