In the wips of this piece I called it little girl Africa for which I apologise! I didn't know who the photographer was or what her story was... I found the image on google and loved it!
I have since been told the name of the photographer - Bart Nino , you can find his amazing works at www.ninobartuccio.com
I hope you enjoyed viewing it as much as I enjoyed drawing it... it has been a work in progress for months on end and I am happy with the result for a change!
