An author ‘s inspiring story from Facebook

African author screen print

I was totally inspired by Chimamanda’s full TED Talk about the danger of a single story which appeared on Facebook. For more information about this subject…here is the link  http://bit.ly/2utmnE5

This portrait was done with brushpen and gouache. I was not sure about the background colour so I used my computer to do a mock up before deciding on this golden yellow.  She is such a solar subject that a sunshine colour seemed the right choice !
