Out of the Box. Box Here Being both Slang and Metaphor.
I justnowthisverysecond sent the set of final drawings to Lissa for her forthcoming book, What's Up Down There? Questions You'd Only Ask You Gynecologist if She Was Your Best Friend.
The sneaky peak is from the chapter on pregnancy. I love the big, starry, moon-belly popping out of the border. Most of the drawings employ that device- an organic shape extends beyond a squared border. It's a fun and pretty composition, and it sort of represents the whole "Hi, I'm your vagina. Nice to meet you" conversation Lissa has crafted. This project was a dream come true for me, and I'm so happy that Dr. Pinkie's book needed me.
