AARP 'The Ethel' - 'How to Downsize With the Help of Friends'

A recent commission by AARP to create two illustrations for a lifestyle article on 'The Ethel' online newsletter.

 

The Ethel online newsletter is a great resource, targeted at women over 50 and designed to celebrate and champion the idea of older women owning their age.

 

The article 'How to Downsize With the Help of Friends' details the challenges of downsizing house once older. The article significantly promotes the importance of friendship and the impact of helping hands during difficult situations. For this reason, I wanted the two illustrations to really focus on teamwork.

Initial sketches were drawn using a rough pencil, and final illustrations were digitally rendered using Procreate software.
