Safe Space above was originally to be called "Child of Light" as an Adobe Photoshop starchild art piece I was inspired to create.
However, the project was halted after creating the elf girl as inspiration dwindled when I couldn't find a direction to take it. So it sat unfinished in my hard drive for over 10 years, taking only a portion of it to serve as a link banner for my art site. As well as used in banners for other sites I've uploaded to:
Fortunately, as I started to do Adobe Illustrator vector recreations of previous work, I also decided to revisit my unfinished pieces as well, including "Child of Light". With fresh eyes, I allowed it to take a new direction far from the simple piece I had originally intended and thus renamed it "Safe Space", as it now depicted self protection from vulnerability one tends to be bombarded with daily.
