I was commissioned to paint a portrait of 12 fellows of the 2020 NGEN Fellows from Independent Sector. Here's a bit of process of how I did it, minus the reference photos of the individuals and the seated poses.
Peace, my name is Robert Liu-Trujillo. I write and illustrate stories. I design characters, and I paint murals occasionally too. Parenthood, Ethnic Studies, Storytelling, Music, Social Justice, Science Fiction, Design, & Publishing are regular thoughts. To contact me for commissioned art, freelance, or collaboration.
