Finnish publishing house Into Kustannus asked me to illustrate the portrait of Mina Mojtahedi for their book Sankaritarinoita kaikille.
It's a childrens' book full of hero stories.
Mina Mojtahedi is the president of The Finnish Paralympic Committee. She's also been a professional wheelchair basketball player.
I wanted to combine these two elements. I illustrated her doing something she clearly loves doing, which seems to be a driving force in her life. In the picture she is teaching basketball to young players.
