My First Illustrated Pull Quotes

Ayal Pinkus

Hi there!
In the past few months, I finished editing more than 300K words, over 100 episodes, three volumes. The one you can read right now is “Don Quixote,” but soon there will be two more.

However, I felt like drawing again! So I started making these illustrated pull-quotes.

You see them in magazines a lot. You will typically find them around the end of the article, and the sentence pulled from the text is meant to make the reader want to find out more, read more.

Seventeenth century threemaster sailboat on a calm sea with accompanying pull quote that reads For a lack of other amusement you might as well get married.

I thought that it might be interesting to combine them with an illustration that one can share on social media, for that same reason.

They are fun to do. There is also little pressure. I can do as many or as few as I like, and I can make these illustrations whenever I want. The text does not need them.

Illustration of Japanese woman in traditional attire facing away head held low with an accompanying pull quote that reads And Japanese girls do not often cry.

Yours truly,
