Love Story: My Best Friend Marian

Patrick Burgoyne at Creative Review invited the brilliant Marian Bantjes the opportunity to create a Monograph that is sent out with subscription editions of the magazine.

For Marian, it was an opportunity to create new pieces that she titled Love Stories. Each piece is an illustrated text of the story of someone that she loves, and it includes pieces about her mom, her brother, her dad, her dentist, cake and boys, among others. She spent 3 solid weeks on it, and nearly burned herself out. They are quite amazing.

Love Stories



A Gift

The entire piece is featured here. Thank you, Marian!
