So here is one I finished in Illustrator last week. The colors are more brilliant in the original, I'll have to figure out why they changed. We were given a fortune cookie for the assignment. the instructor asked us to illustrate our fortune. Mine read: "You will do well to expand your horizons." My husband helped me come up with the initial idea and I took off with it. The baby is trying to expand his space and of course the woman is expanding both physically and she is expanding to a new stage in her life. The style is supposed to be loosely based on the painting style used on Russian black lacquer boxes (palekh) and byzantine iconic paintings.
