Kamala Harris. The Pioneer
I, like many people around the US and the world were thrilled Joe Biden chose Kamala Harris as his VP for the 2020. I recently learned that Kamala Harris had chosen her secret service codename: Pioneer. Reflecting the fact that she would be the first Afro American VP, the first Female VP and the first Indian American VP. I wanted to illustrate her as a pioneer, climbing a snow mountain (a metaphor for her amazing career in a vastly white dominated environment). The American flag above her head symbolizes the fact that she puts America and the American people higher than her. She holds the flag firmly with both hands showing power and fearlessness, ready to make a new landmark. Illustration made with Procreate on my iPad Pro.
