BRIEF

Create an illustration that reflects the opinion piece "The most thing would be to say that I'm shocked..." by Waleed Aly.

APPROACH

I wanted to approach the piece by illustrating something subtle yet impactful, without using violence and aggression as a theme to carry the message across to the audience.
