Friend Zone


This is a series of illustrations as seen in the February 2015 issue of Chatelaine. The Friend Zone explores a new service aimed at setting up women in their late 20s and 30s on platonic “friend dates.” The author writes about her experience using the service, and the illustrations explore her inner dialogue and anxieties about how she presents herself on each date. Does she seem flaky for talking TV instead of politics? Is she a square for being concerned about her kids using drugs?
