We Are One | Earth Day Celebration

This project was produced for the 3rd issue of Wandermag for Earth Day Celebration where I was invited to participate along with other 29 women from all ages from seven countries,

The illustration had to celebrate and say thank you to Mother Earth. The illustration I created represents that we are one and we are all connected.

I wanted to represent the circle of life, the concept that we are ONE and all connected to each other, from land, to oceans to the sky, as humans, animals and nature.

I always start with pencil and paper and make several sketches, smaller and then larger ones. After that I take a picture with the phone and transfer it to the ipad. This time I decided to work on Adobe Fresco, where I sketched the drawing again and made a cleaner line drawing. I started adding the color in layers, like the fishes, birds, leaves so I can play and have freedom to move things around, rotate or flip.

People have had a great positive reaction to the project. I feel the illustrations has a positive and hopeful vibe.
