TropoGirl - Chinese country girl - Leaving home by Kartoon

TropoGirl - Chinese country girl - Leaving home by 

This is the second of a series of illustrations I was asked to make, using the TropoGirl character adapted, to prepare a presentation for a large Chinese company, owned by a woman who had a life similar to this girl, who was very poor, living in the country and left her home, family and boyfriend to try a life in the big city. She ended up succeeding and building a garment empire. Due to a disagreement it ended up not being presented to that company, but it’s here, for your eyes. I just didn’t want to leave it sitting there, forgotten in a folder.

    Background not faded now!! Great work.

  • in this case i used a sepia tone to show the country life like something it was gone, in the past and the bright colors to the new place, the big city, her future, so the colors are brighter.

    I think these are absolutely brilliant…. Wonderful the way they look
    like cut-outs too!! I love them all!!

  • hi Karin! thank you so much! the idea was that. i wanted to give to it a feeling of fragments of her story, the past life in the country a little bit faded, subtly toned in sepia dn the new place in brighter colors, but even the “future” is part of a story being told, a collage of events of her life, so the cut-outs look to it.
