vonetta mcgee

a few weeks ago i completed a one day project in which i created an image inspired by an obituary received at random, mine was vonetta mcgee. i chose to take this quite liberally and just experimented with a few ideas. i used the heart because i wanted to portray the strong values and passion that i felt from her story. 
from this initial drawing i just began to push through whatever came to mind and ultimately, just relax into it. i find it preferable to let my subconscious flow and just draw, than to over-think and procrastinate.
the above images are the results, expressions.
