Illustrations for Racked, winter 2017

“You’ve probably seen an insulin pump, even if you didn’t realize it. Most of them look like clunky pagers, connected by medical tubing to an injection where the insulin is delivered. Another kind is “wireless,” and looks like a little pod which is controlled by a separate remote. With the first, the wearer is dealing with a Gameboy-like device strapped onto some part of her clothing or tucked away in a pocket. With the second comes an ovular bulge protruding from her arm or stomach.” — Stephanie Talmadge, Racked
