As part of my Editorial briefs at university, I had a job creating an illustration for an Agony Aunt section of The Guardian about a woman supporting her husband who likes to wear her lingerie.
These are the three images I submitted, and had really nice feedback about them! Thanks everyone, although constructive criticism is always appreciated too.
The aim of these illustrations was to take pin-up paintings from the 50’s and 60’s and replace them with men. The idea of men wearing lingerie back then wouldn’t have gone down very well, but these days I suppose images like these would just be considered hilarious. The purpose of these pictures are to make the men in these drawings look proud that they are wearing them and not just for laughs. But I did get a couple comments that they should’ve posed more like the third image, like he was proud but also more masculine.
I’m all for men wearing women’s clothes or lingerie, women can wear trousers so why can’t guys wear skirts? I’d really like some feedback whether these illustrations have served their purpose.
