This is the product from a university brief we were set, entitled 'Biography.' We were told to pick a name out of a hat, and the told to go away and do as much research as possible on that person and had to come up with 5 illustrations to best represent his/her life. I had pick Bessie smith, a blue's artist from the 1920's. I chose to portray her attributes with series of anthropomorphic characters each portraying a unique personality trait.
