editorial job – The Globe and Mail
For today’s edition of The Globe and Mail I was hired to illustrate an article in the special section for Earth Day! The article is about Fashion Takes Action, a membership based social enterprise created to support environmentally conscientious designers. You can read the article online here, though the illustrations are only in the print edition, so I of course I scanned it for internet consumption. I think it looks great. Click the scans for higher resolution.
The illustration is a bit of a riff on the old fash-mag feature “the look for less”. I styled two similar outfits using real items of clothing. I’ll let you guess who the “eco-bad” items are by, but the good items are all available to buy online in Canada. If that’s not enough to get you clicking, almost all of them are on sale.
