The reason i chose this illustration is because it depicts something i relate to which is working to death or my fear that possibly the only reason we’re alive is to work. This is to me represents my lower middle class struggles and what the reality of these industries make us feel like. Blue collar working from his death bed because it never really ends . The Artist who created this piece is Pete ryan ; he created this piece for the washington post and it is called “How to prevent working to death” .
pete ryan is an amazing artist and what intrigues me most about his work is focused on concepts and metaphors. There is some literal representation of storytelling and satire in this piece for me and I personally feel like His visuals are tricky , bold and graphic.
