Ellen Weinstein: The Bitch is Back for Atlantic Monthly

Work / Illustration

Illustrator Ellen Weinstein keeps excellent editorial work coming

New York-based Ellen Weinstein is the go-to illustrator for some of the biggest names in the media and it’s not difficult to see why. Her latest work shows off her spectacular ability to create enjoyable and evocative visual shorthand for issues as complex as atheism in the African-American community and controversial Jewish film-making. But that all makes her sound misleadingly serious, when in fact she has a lighter touch too employed to splendid effect both in animal-based images and the above piece for an article about the menopause. Fabulous stuff.
