Created in 2007, updated in 2021. When I first moved to NYC, I finally felt free to be myself. A few months later I saw a girl at a student fashion show who was walking down the runway with the same expression I imagine I had when walking down the street along Central Park at night: joy, freedom, confidence. I drew her likeness with illustration markers and then used a glue transfer technique to add it to this image of NYC. It's been recently scanned and digitized so I could bring it to hive.
