moths and butterflies

A portrait made of Yael Naim, a french singer songwriter. The photo used is taken by Isabelle Chapuis. Yael Naim sings cheerful songs but here themes can be quite serious. I wanted to let the portrait also have cheerful first impression but also bring in a element of the night (the moths) as a symbol of the dark side of life. The photograph used shows Yael listening. Combining photo with illustration lets us move out of a realistic world into one of imagination and fantasy.
