Recent 004 – Keeping the Piece


Back in January I did this Axiom style illustration for Successful Farming (Art Director: Matt Strelecki). The illustration was for an article titled: Protecting Assets Against DivorceIs it necessary to cut a spouse from ownership in order to protect business assets against divorce? Sometimes spouses are left out of ownerships to keep family farms and their assets “in the family” and protect farms from being split up if divorces take place down the road. It seems like a tough situation. I wanted to depict this perceived potential threat that family members might feel when one of them is getting married. The cutting of the wedding cake seemed to be the right vehicle for that: happy occasion / anxious occasion.

Many thanks to Matt for his usual great art direction.
