Boudica

artwork, drawing, illustration

Drawing: Marker and Pencil

Size: 7 H x 9.4 W inch

Boudica pops up randomly in my life. She hides in my history books, creeps up on me in galleries and songs. So I decided to dedicate an illustration to the queen of the the Iceni tribe, who put torches to early Roman settlements to defend her people. The drawing is another composition of shapes and colours that reoccur daily in my mind. The portrait has been inspired by organic, feminine shapes and geometrically repetitive patterns, which I thought represent Boudica perfectly.
