Patchwork Girl

This illustration was created for two purposes. Kind of like shooting two birds with one stone. First, Amy Smith, an old friend of mine, became involved with a charity drive for Domestic Violence Services of Lancaster County There was a call for entries for donations which I gladly submitted a few pieces for. This one I created specifically with the event in mind. In addition to the event I had another "paint off" deadline with the "Yow Experiment" on facebook. This is a group of University of the Arts illustration graduates dedicated to creating a piece within a bi-monthly deadline. I used collage elements of natural items as well as fabrics and tapestries in addition to the painting of the face.
