Utne Reader Magazine : Narcissism
These were several editorial illustrations done for the May-June 2011 issue of UTNE Reader. These were done for a bundle of stories around the subject of narcissism. This first one was a half-page, opener for "The Culture of Narcissism" - playing off the idea of thinking you are the center of the universe.
"The Narcissism Myth" - this one revolves around the subject of young people and their need for outside validation (i.e. Twitter, Facebook, etc.) being rooted in their own insecurity.
"Just Do It" - the focus on this discussion was about self-improvement, self-help books, obsession with being the best we can be, and the power of positive thinking. More or less poking fun at this stuff.
"Whatever Happened to Empathy" - explored how much we've lost our ability to empathize with others, walk in other people's shoes, etc.
"Narcissus Regards a Book" - People want to read about themselves and what they're into, not great literature.
