I was asked by Julia Rothman to produce an illustration for the upcoming book: The Who, The What and The When: 65 Artists Illustrate the Secret Accomplices of History. It’s being published by Chronicle books and being released in 2014. I am really looking forward to seeing what the other artists have created!
I illustrated Queen Ka’ahumanu, the favourite wife of King Kamehameha I and the most powerful woman of her time in Hawaii. Upon her husband’s death she donned a feather cape and called herself Queen Regent. When the missionaries came in 1820 she ended up destroying all the ancient gods and temples leading to the ultimate downfall in a kingdom she helped create.
