Editorial Illustration: Left Behind

Illustration for this week’s Ask the Femme, in which a reader needs advice about her girlfriend’s upcoming year abroad. Read the full article here: My Girlfriend is Moving Abroad, and I'm Devistated
Rough thumbnails of three concepts: a suitcase packed by the door, a map showing the distance between the reader and her girlfriend, and the reader at the airport (texting, watching the plane board).
Cleaned up sketch of the third thumbnail. I wanted to show the reader's conflicted emotions, and I chose to do so (fairly literally) by showing her texting a heart while shedding a tear.
