Fragility of life

 Life's fragility refers to how valuable and delicate it is; sadly, we don't recognize this until we're forced to in situations where we have no choice but to take life for granted. I brought awareness to it by painting symbols of what matters to me to most in life implying it can all be gone in a matter of seconds.

Day in a Life

This illustrative piece was inspired by famously known music artist Mac Miller's song "Ayye".  His song talks about adolescence and teenage recklessness with lyrics such as “Don't fade till I'm black, ima stain the map” implying not to conform to normal life and what society says, leaving his mark in the world."  I wanted to portray that through the reflection of my own teenage years.  I decided to transform all of my friends into characters including myself and putting us in a suburban to city night setting showing scene of us having fun.  The process of this piece was layering each individual subject and building to give more perspective and story-like feel.
