From the Artist

Medium: Block ink and soft pastel
Surface: Cotton paper

This was a piece that I did in high school as part of my AP-2D curriculum. We were given the task of creating a stamp out of a styrofoam block and making a pattern out of it. I had decided to make three stamp designs: a spine design, a small design for the body, and a large pattern for the background. I then applied the stamps with block ink and rendered the figure behind the designs with soft pastel after they dried. I was inspired to create this piece as a homage to my Nigerian heritage.
