Hay fever

Breeze and sneeze

* flowers, spring, hay fever *

Inspired by my loyal hay fever that comes back every year, I decided to create a series of personal illustrations on the subject. 

I started from the word play “j’hume et rhume les foins” (literally “I smell and cold the hay”… sorry for the very bad translation of this pun) to create a portrait, a typographic composition and a floral illustration made with ink.
