Editorial illustration: FOKUS the Swedish news magazine
Posted 1 month ago and submitted by Stefan Lindblad | Share link: http://illo.cc/75748

I was approached by Swedish News Magazine FOKUS. The article subject was marriage, the type of marriage in which the two being married are more getting married for external reasons like society, politics, power, religion and so forth, instead of being in love. They go through the whole marriage thing, only to see when the big moment comes that they are supposed to be in love – and ultimately deliver a child. They feel almost held hostage.

Fokus magazine, Culture section, full page. Technically, I made a quick first draft, pencil, in Corel Painter and then quickly moved over to CorelDRAW and created it as a vector illustration.

The editorial team and the art director gave me free hands to interpret and create the illustration. They loved it immediately.
