October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month...

...and I urge you to pick up MORE Magazine (Canada) for a special feature on the disease. Not only because you can see the 6 illustrations I did for the feature, but more importantly for some interesting and enlightening research on the disease that affects us all, in one way or another.
Here are a few of the illustrations you can find in the October issue. Thanks to the fantastic Shelley Frayer at MORE for another great assignment.
