Finally, after weeks of conceptualising and designing and drawing, my final ego up on the line!
Bird + Japan = Me
Straightforwardness – Restrictions = Freedom
Determined x Delibrate/not giving up = Bamboo, a symbol of ultimate resistance
Planting my dream (letting the seedling grow) + Preserverance (enduring the harsh winter) = Full bloom (thats when i can bloom finally and shine)

Finally, we head on to the last project of 2D for this semester!
