Teraanga: The word that defines Senegal


Un-commissioned | New Talent

Why did you make this work:
This imagined editorial magazine cover with hand-rendered type was a self-initiated project originally inspired by a BBC travel article. I was fascinated by this idea of Teraanga, characterised by generosity, hospitality and warmth, Teraanga is everywhere in Senegal, and has helped shape the nation’s identity. I wanted to symbolise the bigheartedness embodied by the people of Senegal.

How was the illustration used:
This was a personal project, so it was only an imagined magazine front cover.

How did you make this work:
I developed the ideas in my sketchbook and hand-drew the rough, illustrated digitally but trying to keep this hand drawn coloured pencil quality. The type is also hand drawn.
