The following is a process note for Yesbelt Fernendez.
Yesbelt’s portrait popped up when I just happened to be looking to do something a little different stylistically. I did a little research and found some amazing batik patterns that heavily influenced my choice of color and it’s application. The Mandala, I created as a line drawing first. The colors and patterns were created as separate documents, as well. Then I scanned the separate elements into the computer, and manipulated their assembly, digitally. My aim was to create a fun and energetic piece, to match Yesbelt’s open and engaging expression.
Thank you for participating, Yesbelt!

My ideal relationship is one that brings out our best self while keeping us young at heart by having fun together. It is built on a foundation of respect, loyalty, and honesty.
