Monte Miller’s “May Your Pink Skies Keep Me Warm” went from a random sketch to a digital painting with lush pinks and shading.

May Your Pink Skies Keep Me Warm by Monte Miller

Can’t you just imagine Chicago-based artist Monte Miller listening to Frank Ocean‘s “Sierre Leone” while transforming this sketch into a digital painting with lush pinks and shading?

Titled “May Your Pink Skies Keep Me Warm/ Love Black Bird,” the beautiful artwork’s name references lyrics from the song.

The piece, which Monte describes as “a random sketch of a girl with a ridiculously big afro [that] turned into painting practice,” is available by a print. Buy here.
