Winner of the 2020 Applied Arts illustration awards - Self-promotion category
"The Messenger started as a self-promotional project that evolved into an intimate personal work which reflects the artist's role as an observer of quiet beauty. In our modern age of visual over-stimulation, "The Messenger" invites viewers to devote care to examining minute details instead of hastily passing a superficial glance. All the intricate strokes carry the weight of past artists, to accompany and embrace the viewer in a moment of profound and peaceful contemplation."
