Status Foe


Back in December, while moving, I did an illustration for Bitch Magazine, regarding an article about people who lurk on Facebook. There's a study out that says people who tend to post less information about their own lives on Facebook will secretly look at other peoples' profiles a lot more. They feel embarrassed about their own shortcomings, or feel that they haven't gotten where they want in life versus their friends who have graduated, gotten married, are having children, visiting amazing vacation spots, and so on (which is all constantly being posted on Facebook's Feed). Pretty interesting stuff!

Enjoy!

This is great. I really like the colors you chose and the perspective.

I like this a lot. Real world representations of virtual stuff fascinate me. I had a dream once that was all in IM boxes, and all I could think about is what that says about reality now.

Awesome! I love this. Congrats on all the published work you are getting. I'm happy for you! It's so great to see the progression of your art. I miss you. Perhaps one day I'll see you on the other side of the country. :)
