It took me awhile to figure out what I wanted to name this piece. The basis of this entire portrait comes from the notion of being a Goddess or the embodiment of one… (See the glowing, illuminating skin?) The first title I came up with was “Goddess”, but that didn’t seem like enough to me. Because my ego is in the mix of this portrait, It thought about naming it Goddess”Ego”. No, that isn’t it.
While coming up with a title, I was listening to Slum Village Radio on Pandora. All of a sudden, a De La Soul song comes on called “Ego Trippin”! “Ego Trippin” it is! This is my second piece of art that is named after a classic hip hop song.
The mediums I used are charcoal, graphite and acrylic. I hope you enjoy!
