This is the first design in a new series we’re calling “Fear and Loathing in America”. It is a collaboration between myself and a really gifted cartoon artist I met on deviantArt who goes by the handle “sketchoo“. I saw his work and saw that awesome Steadman-esque quality. So I approached him about working together and the results will be cross-posted here. I come up with the concepts, titles, and typography – he does the actual cartooning and visualization – and then we composite it all together.
This design illustrates how “justice” in the U.S. is tilted towards those with money. And anyone and anything else is basically jettisoned off the scales from the magnitude of the imbalance. There’s also a bit of a play on words with the title if you look close.
