I recently finished two new illustrations for the youth branch of Swedish; Save the children.
They wanted two illustrations about gender roles and the norms that restrain us.
The first one is an illustration about breaking free from norms and gender roles.
And this second one is about; how we are molded into different gender roles in different situations. So for example the line of crosses represents biological gender, the line of pyramids; legal gender, the cylinder line; social gender, and so on. And how some fit into these roles and some don't and some are more or less trapped in them. And in the end of the lines it's transformed into a new shape representing all different types of gender roles in one single shape.
