Benjamin Franklin by fabiolagarza Benjamin Franklin by fabiolagarza
Yay, assignment to design a cover a biography of Ben Franklin. It doesn't really look like a cover but I like it anyways.

Gorgeous, the lighting is so uplifting and reveals his determination and ideals. I really like the contrast between the dour, wet people all gazing down and how Franklin shines with promise. This is a glorious cover, I am thrilled by your entire gallery but am especially moved by your historically themed pieces.

This is such a beautiful piece of art!! I love how the light shining upon Dr. Franklin symbolizes (at least to me) how he illuminated the eighteenth century world of science, politics, and even literature. This is a splendid dedication to Franklin; you are a very talented artist!!
