Your Swiss Army Knife 2017
Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?
I chose the ocelot because it is an animal that lives in mexican territories. His story is pretty sad, because in Mexico is an endangered species.
What culture or region does the animal stand for?
What story does your design tell?
My design represents vitality, life. Awareness for a better future for different species around us.
What style did you choose for your design and why?
I tried to show a background with small circles representing beadwork that is used by ethnic groups in my country.
