Symposium

RidingInCarsWithLesbians_illustration
Here is my latest Symposium opener illustration for the current issue of OUT, which is on stands now. It is accompanying an excerpt from the story by Helena Andews entitled "Riding in Cars with Lesbians" about witnessing domestic violence as a girl. Initially there was a sketch that touched on the fight itself, but ultimately the sketches of the moments after when she's tending to her mothers injuries in the bathroom seemed truer to the overall tone of the piece.

This piece looks really great in the magazine; very faithfully reproduced and well spaced on the page. Good job!!

Really like the colours and lighting in this piece and the fact that we see the scene through the mirror, it ads well to the piece...
