The haiku I selected features the historically rich Harriet Tubman and the underground railroad. The character and look were important parts of making this illustration. My goal was to accurately describe her look, as well as express the essence of the person.

I constructed her portrait with a series of Murrey-like colors, which I felt acted as a visual counterpoint to her intensity. In addition, my goal was to portray Tubman in a soft almost nonobjective environment, providing an interesting foil to her portrait, plus suggest the idea of illumination and the North Star as forward-thinking symbols.
