My illustration for Oh Comely Magazine :)

Hi Guys ! :)
Here is my illustration for Oh Comely Magazine a Super Cool Magazine !!! :)
This Issue's illustration feature was based on an alphabet of untranslatable words sent by Adam Jacot de Boinod, a researcher for QI who picked up an Albanian dictionary only to discover that there were no less than 27 words for eyebrow and began to compile his own list of words with no English equivalent.

I choose the Portuguese word "Janeleiro".

Janeleiro : Said of one who spends much time at the front window, especially a young woman who is something of a coquette.

  2. Hi, I wanted to let you know that I linked to this blog post on I'm the guest editor there this month.
    I love your stuff and I love this project. Anything that has to do with illustrating words is so interesting to me. I've illustrated different collective nouns, you can check them out on my site.
    Thanks! Kate
