Visual solution

Explain how and why you created this work. Was it for a specific brief, etc.?

I created hand drawn motifs, uploaded the motifs into Inkscape program where I began to arrange, create effects, and color my designs. From there, I imported the designs into Adobe Illustrator for layout arrangement and layering for the finish. I wanted to create repeat designs that appeared soft and somewhat etheral for apparel and accessory (scarves) markets, especially for Hijab and Abayas.

What were you trying to express?

Soft, etheral surrealism feel.

Is it 100% your original work?

Yes. The photo of the woman wearing a contemporary hijab is from here: http://iconosquare.com/p/1137147369481467450_17483484
