This illustration was created for the Boca de Oro Festival in Santa Ana, California.

Here I share an excerpt from the press release, that describes it all very well:

"The 2022 festival theme, “Together We Rise,” honors the spirit of healing, recovery, rebirth, and reconnection through the arts.

The Boca de Oro Festival of Literary, Visual, Performing Arts & Culture returns with an exciting array of live performances, interactive workshops, engaging panel discussions, author talks, readings, and more. Boca de Oro will enliven the Historic Downtown District of Santa Ana with the theme of “Together We Rise,” honoring the spirit of healing, recovery, rebirth, and reconnection through the arts amidst the pandemic. As a symbolic invitation to the community, the official illustration by Santa Ana’s own Romina Ramirez features a phoenix rising from the collective work of community creators. It is a powerful and poignant reminder of the healing power of art and community."
