PROXIMITY: Illustration series by Shaun Lynch

I was asked to produce a mini series of work to accompany French fashion designer Loulou Reloulou’s concept of ‘shared fashion’ – clothing which brings two or more people together. So I decided to explore what the instinctive reactions might be to this invasion of space, this enforced proximity. The more primal consequences I decided upon became a figure study of Lovers, Haters, Protectors and Fighters.
