How did you make this work:
I was asked to illustrate a film poster for the documentary "Dorpie". It is a portrait of Lana, a woman who runs a safe house for women suffering from violence and drug addiction near Bredasdork in South Africa. I created the Poster with Lana in its center and regional Flowers around her, showing her determined fight for a new awakening and change.
