Self Image


Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
This was for the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant. It was an open brief to illustrate the cover and inside of a feature about the negative effect of social media on young people's self-image

How was the illustration used:
The cover of the opinion section in De Volkskrant

How did you make this work:
I start the process with some very rough conceptual ideas because the deadlines for the these features are very short. I then work straight in Illustrator and finish off details in Photoshop.
