I did this illustration for an article about a woman who was married to a man who was obviously gay. The poor woman. What's sad is that she knew he might be gay before going into the deal, but she went through with it anyway. I guess she was lonely, or desperate, or something...
I've been in an unrequited love situation before. It's so painful. loooooong ago (can you tell I just turned 30? haha), in high school, I crushed on a few straight boys in my class. They probably had NO IDEA a male classmate of theirs was crushing so hard on them, but it happened. They moved on, got married, probably had kids, and will never know.
Of course, now I realize there are plenty of men of my persuasion I can crush on! A some of them aren't out of my reach...
Anyhow, can you tell what artwork inspired the girl in my illo?
Picasso's "Weeping Woman" to be exact!
