Self-initiated project to create a set of conceptual illustrations inspired by this Walden University article.
Show how the rapid progression of the internet and digital technology over the last few decades has changed 4 key areas of our development - attention, relationships, decision-making, and memory.
Technology undoubtedly makes our lives easier. But it also creates a distance between ourselves and our real lives. Having digital input available 24/7 can be both beneficial and detrimental to how we engage with the real world.
I wanted the characters to show this contrast - to be relatable and friendly, but still feel slightly disengaged from the viewer.
