Maya Angelou - Rest in Peace

Yesterday a woman with such a radiant and beautiful spirit became an angel. This is a pencil sketch I did of a young Maya. It is not finished... I plan on adding hand drawn typographic elements around her portrait. Please stay tuned for an update with the finished piece. Maya Angelou will always be remembered for being the Phenomenal Woman that she was, and inspiring so many to be amazing as well. Rest in Paradise Maya.

So here is the latest progress in the Maya Angelou piece. I added typography. It is a list of titles of some of her poems. Now i have to clean it up a bit, make the lines more crisp, and I will update again once it is complete. :)
