Some projects are fun, some are tedious and some just outright beat the crap out of you. This one was a combination of all three... and I loved it. I learned a ton of lessons throughout the process of making these illustrations. One, it's easier to make a pretty image than it is to convey a message through one. I still have a lot to learn but the fact is I managed to understand what my strengths and weaknesses were and how I could better maneuver myself creatively from here out- and that's always a good thing. At the end of the day, I'm proud as hell because Medium is on its way to doing huge things in the world of publishing and I got to be a part of it.
These illustrations I made were for the relaunch of Matter via a surreal article about Britney Spears as a feminist role model. She's in Vegas and she's making you work. At least, she made me. Take a few minutes whenever you have some time to read this article, it's pretty great.
