I have been wanting to improve my character illustrations for a while, as in 2017 I have enjoyed focusing on atmosphere, lighting, colour and composition.
Gustave Eiffel bought the rights in 1884 to build a huge 4-cornered metal tower which would eventually become his namesake and the pinnacle of the 1889 Paris Expo.
Josephine Baker was an incredible character in history. Born in slums, Baker became a cabaret dancer and an overnight sensation in Paris, before joining the French Resistance during WWII and receiving high commendations for her persistent work. In the 1950s she strived for civil rights and performed to an integrated crowd Miami.
Oh and she had a pet cheetah.
