racist one night stand

I was commissioned by Buzzfeed to illustrate this piece by Ella Sackville Adjei about a one night stand with a guy who turned out to be racist. Probably best to avoid the comment section if you want to enjoy the rest of your day. Matthew Tucker, the excellent art director at Buzzfeed UK, wanted the images to work as comic panels - something that was more storytelling than illustrating. We played around with a few ideas before landing on these six images. Obviously, it all works better in context and when the images have more room to breathe, so head here to read the full piece.
