29 Faces Day 22
It's interesting to note where inspiration comes from sometimes to assist in this challenge. The face of this young girl came from the front page of The Guardian, she is a 17 year old student and has now become the face of the Guardian's campaign to help end the practice of female genital mutilation in Britian.
I was drawn to her very sweet face and the colourful headscarf she was wearing which is far more vibrant and detailed than what I have chosen to draw.
I liked her simple message, she said "I want to help these girls who don't have a voice"
