Postcard illustrated with girl and top knot

This illustration was created based on a photograph that I was able to use from a wonderful company based in Rotterdam. UNU Rotterdam make colourful bags using beautiful fabric with African prints. The bags are sewn by women who have difficulty entering the workforce. See more  on the UNU website

The original drawing was made with India ink, a brush and a dip pen. The colourful bag was made with goauche. The postcard is  printed on thick paper that looks like artist watercolour paper. You can even colour it in to personalise it! A perfect postcard to send, give along with a gift or to decorate your home.
