‘Trapped in Elegance’ by Bee Grandinetti, Illustrator & Animator

London based Illustrator graphic designer expert
“A while ago I was feeling quite frustrated about a project that had a major direction shift on design and I suddenly caught myself having to draw a bunch of skinny women. It’s not a message I stand behind (we’re all so tired of that) and it really pained me I couldn’t make them more diverse, chunkier and real.⠀
But I had to swallow it up and get used to drawing more “elegant” and thinner shapes for the project. And as I was getting more familiar with the style, I drew a few extra sketches to vent my frustration too: anonymous faceless women trapped in boxes, their bodies as empty vessels for ‘beauty'”. ⠀
