Rafael Lanfranco


Un-commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
The dramatic increase of content poses the question of what we do with our time. Are some of us headed towards a society of useless streaming junkies that consume the moving image to placate our deep anxieties and dissatisfactions? Are we going to binge-watch a significant part of our existence while we complain of the little time we have to pursue what is meaningful to us?

How was the illustration used:
It was posted on my Facebook Page and the Instagram page as a way of creating awareness among followers, (around 3200 on my personal Facebook page and 9900 on the Instagram page)

How did you make this work:
Used Photoshop as a tool to create the illustration. I composed the two images together using references from the internet, drew and colored them to produce the final picture.
