illustration of I was invited by Newstatesman Magazine to illustrate an article about such a powerful woman for this latest issue of the magazine.

While I worked on it I tried to add some symbolic elements as well as some metaphoric too. I split her portrait - it symbolises feminism that was understood and supported by many, but also had enemies.

illustration of Love is also about the society we struggle to get the acceptance from so that we can at least try living the life surrounded by those we cherish, love and share happiness with.

Portraits Of Pride HSBC campaign was part of the Birmingham and London Prides. To create the artwork I was paired with a bisexual woman to learn about her life and listen to the story about her coming out. Based on an open conversation and guided by the inspiring story I created Blue’s Portrait of Pride.
