THE HAPPY BUTCHER'S WIFE
Illustrations for The Happy Butcher's Wife, novel by a contemporary author Zsófia Bíró, published by Libri.
“The novel is about a hopelessly fullfilled love story, a confession of a possessed butcher's wife, embedded into a proclamation of gastronomy, a writing about the pleasures and pains of meat, and how could be a kitchen the heaven and the hell at the same time.”
Below you can see an original pencil sketch for the pig and final vector drawings. Every chapter has an illustration with something chopped into half, and there are special knives for almost all of them. I drew some trademarks for the knives because of the fun, you can see them in the blades.
