Youthful spirit and the American Dream. This portrait illustration embodies the essence of teenage kicks and excitement. The artwork reflects back to make the audience consider the eye of the viewer, the rebellious and energetic minds of the young and free. Painted, inked and coloured with expressive and raw line work that rushes to capture the fleeting moment, the way the light falls against the body, the interlocking lines of gathering fabric. The weight of the image is grabbed by the commanding black lines of the hands whilst the delicate white lace work lends a soft contrast to keep the eye engaged with floral pattern work and elegant curved lines that complement the natural lines of the form.
