I was requested to illustrate a character for a packaging celebrating Mother's Day.
The requirements I got were that the character should be a small, dedicated and fragile woman because that was what motherhood represented for the client.
I got angry with such assumptions, so I decided to do these three illustrations of how I perceive my mother. Strong and big like a house. She loves smoking and collecting cactuses in reclined cups and jars.
I had an idea to do an animation but I didn't find the time yet.
