Label Magazine Issue 12

The recent news of the possible ban of religious headwear such as the Burka has made it it into the news section in Label Magazine this week. I took on the illustration for the article, knowing that this was a sensative topic to handle, yet couldnt be avoided without raising some questions in the lllustration.
I wanted to focus on the eyes and show the beauty but at the same time not hide the worry in which these people are facing if this is part of their religious life in those countries. Illustrating an actual Burka was too literal, therefore thought a sensative way way was to use a pair of hands to make a frame for the eyes. This illustration didn't have to be complicated as the main focus were the eyes. Here is my end result. Done in paint tool SAI and Photoshop CS5.
