Virtue and an Opening

This is the final art for the Virtue piece, Vice's counterpart. Unlike Vice, I wanted this figure to look nurturing, compassionate, and unconcerned with the viewer as she ascends. I enjoy doing these type of pieces, people floating, and I feel this is one of the most successful pieces that I've done recently.
In other news, anyone who may be stopping into Philadelphia during the next month should invest sometime in the University of the Arts' Illustration Thesis exhibition. Called the "Ely," after William H Ely, the show was hung on Friday and is up, I believe, until April 21st. There's a lot of great work hanging in this show so I urge anyone in the area to check out a new batch of rising illustrators. The actual reception is on April 6th in the main building of the school at Broad & Pine St.s.
