Gabriel Silveira Depicts the Different Types of Ex-Lovers

Gabriel Silveira, a Brazil-based illustrator and graphic designer, created a series of illustrations that mock various personality traits of exes. The artist must have quite the romantic history too, because he came up with ten different kinds of ex-lovers.

Each "lover" is drawn as a comical character that has exaggerated features and mannerisms. They hint to the stereotypical behaviors of those who got the short end of the stick in a relationship, like "talking nonsense," "stalking," "gaining weight" and "drunk dialing."

A rooster fittingly represents the ex who won't stop talking, an awkwardly square-shaped character with binoculars represents the stalker and the drunk dialer is depicted with a phone and a bottle of alcohol in his hands.

The illustrations were created in homage to iGay, a brazillian website focused on the LGBT audience.
