Nothing displays the selfishness of human nature quite like the irrational behaviour of people during a pandemic. However, amidst  panic-buying and hoarding, we must examine the motivation behind such behaviour. If we understand these ugly actions as the result of people desperately trying to protect the ones they love, then these actions would seem less severe and more comical as depicted in my painting. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is the importance to look out for one another. Can our love, care and support extend beyond our loved ones to the larger community?

We have many facets of our identity, including personas we adopt when we are online. This character design is based on a common persona- the aggressive liberal, debating social issues and fighting injustice, hence the many pins and flyers. Following the digital theme, the piece takes advantage of the digital medium to create a clean, vector style.

How well do we know the brands we buy products from? This poster encourages viewers to reflect on their choices in the age of consumerism, as they are confronted with the common brands and products they may use, as well as images of the animal experimentation and immoral behavior that may be happening behind the scenes.
