February has blessed me with some small but exciting creative projects. One of them was a project I call “Lion Chess”. Commissioned by Robert Chan, the simple vector illustration was to feature a kingly lion head resting on a chess piece body. Robert sent me some examples of the style he was looking for and I proceeded to draw three variations of the concept in different styles: geometric and modern versus classical.
Where to begin?
The past year has been a year of major changes in my life: I met someone extraordinary and embarked a new relationship, got married and shifted slightly my career focus as an artist. I’ve encountered a lot of challenges and forged a new path for myself. What remains at this point in my life is a happy and motivated woman whose professional focus is illustration, graphic design and web design, in that order, precisely.
