Themes, by Jensine Eckwall
I was giving away this mini-zine of six new drawings during illustration week in NYC, and I figured I’d share it digitally as well. I will have physical copies available for cheap at the coming MoCCA fest.
"Themes" is a bit of exploration and criticism of the recurring imagery I find throughout my work, especially during this very transitional period in my art career. By putting these self-cliches to paper, I will be less apt to rely on them in the future, but also be aware of my personal language of metaphor.

Frigophobia- Fear of Becoming too Cold
—-Upon first researching frigophobia, I was surprised and fascinated by its correlation with other, largely gender-based psychological disorders. It is associated with koro, a culture-specific syndrome where male sufferers believe their genitals are retracting into the body and will disappear. Coldness is associated with an overabundance of yin, the female element.In China and Singapore, when women are notified of the illness (it is traditionally believed that working women are particularly susceptible, triggered by stresses like pregnancy), they tend to withdraw from the workforce, avoid exposure to the elements, and alter their diets as opposed to psychotherapy.
