Celebrating diversity with a portrait of Amanda Gorman
Posted 5 months ago and submitted by Melanie Amann | Share link: http://illo.cc/92583

My most recent personal project (challenge) – to produce a portrait of the first Youth Poet Laureate, Amanda Gorman. I thoroughly enjoyed working with a mix of hand lettering a part of her poem “The Hill We Climb”, which she recited at the inauguration of Joe Biden, paired with the opportunity to celebrate diversity by recognising yet another amazing and strong woman of colour. I chose to produce an editorial piece for both the adult and children’s markets on the same subject.
