Artist depicts women’s common insecurities with playful drawings

It’s not often people pay attention to the little nuances that come with everyday life.

French illustrator Cecile Dormeau has created a series of adorable images which depict common situations in the life of every contemporary woman.

Her work is extremely thought-provoking while remaining simplified and easy to consume. Dormeau uses playfully drawn female characters to express the insecurities of women.

The question is more "why do you put a white trousers during your periods honey?" 😱💦#teenagehoodmemories #friends #periods #friendquestions #stain #doodle #drawing #illustrator #illustration #girl

Her style also offers a sense of empowerment to women as the images express the normality of these sometimes taboo topics.
