Part of a self-directed series called "Chi about New York". It is inspired by my Igbo (Nigerian) heritage. In Igbo mythology a 'chi' is a spirit similar to the guardian angel found in Judeo-Christian religion. Each drawing focuses on feelings of loneliness, ennui, and invisibility in city life.
Original drawing is 18 x 24 inches, brush and ink on paper
