client: Icon of Freedom

Illustration of Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz for the event Icon of Freedom, hosted by the SHM Foundation at the Oxo Tower.

Icon of Freedom was a four day event showcasing the work of this 17th century nun come feminist revolutionary and freedom icon.

I wanted to capture Sor Juana as a contemporary symbol of freedom and feminist ideals. Her legacy in literature and different art forms is still relevant in Mexico today.
