‘Paddle Against the Flow’ is a 160 page book inspired by life and features quotes from artists who have appeared within the magazine over the years. Each quote will be accompanied by a photo or illustration to create a spread for each of the 60 profiled artists.
My objective was to illustrate a single portrait of one of 60 artists selected for the book. In this instance my selected personality was the renowned contemporary, Chinese artist, Ai Weiwei.
