I wanted to create an illustration of Coeur de Pirate giving away her radiating, fragile heart; much like she does with her music and songwriting. The whole illustration idea, the sketching and colouring unfolded in two (sleepless) nights. I was initially going to include a pirate ship in the distance but I deemed it a bit too much of a cliché considering her stage name. I think the open sea brought an air of 'calm before the storm' which I found strangely fitting. Pretty happy with the result.
