When Life Gives You Lemons

When Life Gives You Lemons

This was intended for the cover of a magazine; the issue in question was dealing with ageing in women. I've not heard back from the magazine but I enjoyed making this image. I used an actual photo of a breast for reference and I used acrylic paint and a MUJI pen to make it. The typeface is Fraktur, which I chose to give it the appearance of a tattoo.
