Pope Francis Editorial Illustration

To mark the election of a new Catholic Pontiff, Pope Francis, this illustration was created for editorial use.

Pope Francis
Editorial Illustration

This illustration was put together  6 hours after the announcement
of a new Pontiff at the head of the Catholic Church.

I wanted to test myself on how quickly I could respond to current events and create a portrait of someone who was relatively unknown to the world one minute - and then everywhere the next. That's what editorial illustration is about in my opinion - reaction.
This image is not a religous statement or even a political one for that matter. It is an impartial portrayal of an individual for publication.
