The February issue of Fairlady magazine has an article on why the sex lives of married couples often go kaput, based on Esther Perel’s book, Mating in Captivity. I did the illustrations.
This one was published as a full pager:
And the next brightened up the DPS that followed. It’s a long article!
Both illustrations were made by cutting paper with my NT cutter. I wanted to get a more handmade effect for these illustrations so, instead of my usual approach of cutting black vinyl and then scanning and colouring, I cut paper in the colours I wanted to use. The confetti is, I must confess, made in Illustrator.I’m rather appalled that I used a font on the little tombstone instead of handlettering. What was I thinking? I’ll have to blame end-of-the-yearness for that grave error.
