Looking cute and charming at first glance, the 2010 illustrations of Eleanor Davis have more profound messages. Though her work from the past year includes a diverse range of drawings, the common theme is that of women’s toils.

Painting cultural and sexual subjects into her screenprints and gouache works of art, Davis creates lighthearted references to images that might otherwise have looked more indiscreet—from urinating to giving birth to fruit. The talented American cartoonist has had her work published in Houghton Mifflin’s Best American Comics 2008, though you can be sure to see the 2010 illustrations of Eleanor Davis crop up elsewhere very soon.
