My collection is based on the theme of breaking away from a subversive state of being, alternatively an "awakening." I drew inspiration from two different artists, Hiroyuki Doi, who is known for his grand drawings out of finely pointed details and Seth Malland who speaks of resistance of a dormant state of mind. I wanted this collection to draw this theme into the open and challenge the viewer to find their own awakening. These pieces were hand-drawn and painted using watercolor and pencil. The technical flats were also hand-drawn with Copic markers, these designs were all made to the specification of techniques and themes in respect to the artists that inspired me.
