I took a very long hiatus from all traditional art, and wanted to expand my skills further on the subject. I chose to do a portrait of Gustav Elijah Åhr, also known as Lil' Peep. I really enjoyed his blending of different genres in his music and wanted to memorialize him in a way since he had passed in 2017. It also proved to be a challenge learning how to stylize the tattoos on the face.
