Portrait of Elda Garcia - Owens

See real life Elda ---> Here

I transformed Elda into a classic Pin-up while honoring her heritage giving her an indigenous tattoo of the native "Taino" indians of Puerto Rico. The symbol is known as the "Sol of Jayuya" a town on the island still possessing many ancient petroglyph carvings, as well as adding urban "graff" stylings I love mashing together.

Curios about getting one made? =)

Portrait of Fadila from Morocco

Detail of talented Moroccan fashion designer Fadila AAlouchi  holding needle and thread sewed through her "dove logo" that reads "SALAAM" (peace in Arabic) which is written in the doves face. I made the pattern on her dress the symbol of her native Morrocan "Amazign" tribe. The design of her halo is based on traditional middle eastern mosiac patterns and architectural motifs shared by both Muslim and Jewish cultures.
