I got asked to do these editorial illustrations by Philly Mag for this really great article called, "A Non-Cynics Guide to Life". The article itself is very inspiring, it makes you realize how much of our daily lives are wrapped up in devices and the internet, when, in actuality, the internet doesn't really matter at all. It does exactly what we want it to do without hesitation but it's slowly but surely disconnecting us from real emotions/human beings. The article also emphasizes on taking your time, really being grateful for what has been given to you, and realizing that you are a very very small piece of a giant whole. So because you are such a small piece, you should really take the time to be nice to other small people around you, just because you should. It talks about really letting yourself go in someone, letting yourself be exposed: your body, your feelings, your desires and fears, because thats where real life is lived and I couldn't agree any more.
As for design this was the first pull quote I had ever done so I wasn't sure what to expect but it consisted of super quick turn arounds and really awesome and concise art direction. It was a great experience and I'm pretty excited with the final pieces. Hopefully it's a first of many. Go scoop a copy for yourself pépé.
