teens and sex

I am always trying not to go crazy with nude/risky images. I am comfortable drawing them (yes, it took a while to get used to it) but I am always conscious of what viewer might think. I don't want to offend people but at the same time, I have to get the point across. I think this week's Saturday Illustrations was about finding that middle ground. This image used to be crazy and much more in your face kind of illustration. But I tried to tone it down a little. I think Using big shapes and textures helped a lot. Is this too risky for you?

therapists can treat gay?!

This week's Saturday Illustrations was about therapists are still trying to treat gay/lesbians to become heterosexual. Weird. Anyways, this is my solution to the topic. This is a total new approach, and I tried to make it iconic as much as possible. I kind of like it but I don't want to commit to this style yet. We will see how it goes...

I hope he doesn't overestimate himself...!

This week's Saturday Illustrations topic was "why powerful people overestimate themselves" This article was very interesting. I guess it is good to have power and confidence but having more than enough can destroy yourself. Never forget to be humble! I had fun doing caricature for this illustration. Can you guess who it is?
