Illustrator: Lauren Nassef Article Title: Buying Sex Should Not Be Legal, The New York TImes Article content: Response to Amnesty International's endorsement of a new policy calling for the decriminalization of prostitution, the author argues this will hurt, not help, women because it gives power to men to 'pay less and ask for more'. Techniques: substitution – using price tags to create the woman's garment, these tags vary in amount, implying the woman is not in control of the rates offered.

Article argues we need a new metaphor for how our brains perceive the world. Techniques: pattern between comb and head gives a sense of 'rhythmic pulses'.
Lilly Partridge: "Cut Paper Art & Illustration by Jayme McGowan - another beautiful cut paper work, the textures in the paper really enhance the materiality of the illustration. Limited colour scheme works well with the tonal variants formed through the shadows of the different layers. Again, a very simple concept made effective through strong materiality."
"Utopia by Victo Ngai - this is such an incredible image, the more you look at it the more details you see embedded in it. The brightness of the frog is reflected in the little people and the sky to create a visual balance between the foreground and the background. Very creative and interesting." Lilly Partridge
