I got big inspirations while I was listened to Estelle's' American Boy song. I was also surprised by the size of American eggplants, so the character Miss Eggplant was created as any size girl can fit into it! It was for the Book Show project while I was at the SVA's MFA Illustration program in 2010 with instructors; Marshall Arisman and Carl Titolo. The most enjoyable project I've ever done! Couldn't stop laughing while I was drawing!!
Wow! Thanks for these awards!---
