I’d been wanting to do a drawing of my friend Heather as an Indian goddess for about 10 years. More, actually, and had more recently wanted to have it be a multi-armed goddess. It just seemed to fit her. About a month ago she approached me with ideas for an identity for her new (and stunning) jewelry business–Durga Jewelry. She said she’d been identifying with the goddess Durga, and did I know who that was? So I looked her up and was stunned to find that Durga was indeed the goddess I wanted to draw Heather as. So I did.
