I’m always excited by the prospect of collaborating with Rachel Swirsky. Her stories are layered, often sexual and populated with interesting, nuanced characters. It was a challenge to depict the complex relationship at the core of this story. And fun to play off of a visual archetype. Thank you as always to Irene Gallo, for being open to an image like this and giving me the opportunity to create something for Rachel.
