“Live life as though nobody is watching, and express yourself as though everyone is listening.” 
– Nelson Mandela

You be you. Just the way you are. 
Easier said than done for most people. Kudos to everyone trying to make the world a more inclusive place. A place where people are accepted, supported and celebrated for being their true selves.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.
— Oscar Wilde

I wanted to show people comfortable in their skin — a group of unique individuals united by a common thread, the rainbow ribbon. The idea was to highlight a sense of diversity, acceptance, and fun within the LGBTQIA+ community.
Working with so many colours in the Pride flag was a challenge. I tend to use a more minimal colour palette, so it took me a few attempts to design an image where the colours worked together without overwhelming the figures in the illustration.
