this is the second piece of work based on the idea of urban island cities. The colouring this time around was done digitally to achieve brighter colours. I also attempted to create a coloured-pencil look to juxtapose with some of the strong graphic blocks here. Since aztec prints (any tribal prints) were "in" in fast fashion, i thought that it was good to use that as a base for the negative space as well as a critique on consumerism.

What do you guys think? how can this piece be improved and would you wear it if printed on a shirt?
