Art print of one of my illustrations in the book Stories for South Asian Super Girls. This is the portrait of Noor Jahan. She was a mighty empress during the Mughal Empire. She boldly led the empire when her husband, Emperor Jahangir could not. I decided to depict her with a glow around her head (a nimbus) – a nod to the way rulers of the period were depicted to show their divine right to rule. Depictions of Noor Jahan from this period do not include a nimbus since she was an unofficial ruler. But she really was the powerful leader of the Mughal Empire for many years so I wanted to show her with this element to signify her standing as a full on ruler.

About The Process

I love working with both traditional and digital mediums. Either way, all of my art starts out with a very rough and tiny pencil sketch. From there I refine the outlines of the art at the final size until I’m happy with the underdrawing. My favorite parts of the process are playing with color and layering in all the pattern details.
