Irma Sanchez's Phoenix Rising

Artist: Irma Sanchez
Medium: Mixed media illustration on Pantone paper

I created this because Phoenix is a lot about the bird: Growth, Rebirth, Growth. It takes a special type of individual to live in the desert, and Love has a lotto do with rebirth, so ... this is my way to honor Phoenix.

The countdown to Best of Phoenix begins! Last year, we profiled 100 Creatives who made a mark on the local arts scene. This year, we'll have 100 creative representations of Phoenix. No scope or requirement on medium or size -- we'll include photography, painting, sculpture, video, installation, literary, and more. What do you see when you Imagine PHX?

Imagine PHX, so far:

100: Steven Revering's Westward Ho

99: Jon Ashcroft's Suspended in Geography

98: William LeGoullon's Table

97. Jason Hill's Phoenix Financial Center

And, hey! It's lunch time. Check out Chow Bella's 100 Favorite Dishes for some foodie inspiration.
