Here in Brazil we have a city called Aracaju, which is located in the state of Sergipe. The city's name is due to huge cashew trees where macaws landed to rest and feed.
Which animal(s) did you choose as a visual and why?
Macaws, because they are very symbolic birds in Brazil.
What culture or region does the animal stand for?
Found in Brazil.
What story does your design tell?
I represented the bird and one of the fruits that likes to food (cashew and its nuts). Also I did a tribute to Brazilian town called Aracaju, which symbolically represents the bird and the fruit that I painted.
What style did you choose for your design and why?
Watercolor painting, because it is original and shows my artistic representation.
