2008 - Adobe Illustrator CS3

The goal of this piece was to convey the word soft in two images, one using the word and one without. The first image, without text, was inspired by the movie Moulin Rouge!, specifically the song and scene Come What May and the emotion throughout. Unlike other songs in the movie which skew towards happiness, anger, or sadness, Come What May is about pure love and how delicate yet strong it is.

The second image uses the word in a different way. The connotation is that men are women when they act soft or sensitive, here represented by the color pink, and I wanted to question that stereotype. It uses a stock photo (source unknown).
