A Technological Progress

A Technological Progress

This submission is in response to a narrative illustration brief set by illustration tutor Andrew Hall at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design. It asks students to recreate William Hogarth's 'A Rake's Progress' from a renewed perspective.

The submitted images are part of a series of eight hand-illustrated images that portray humanity's over-dependence on innovation, technology and it's resulting effect on the natural environment. The narrative structure attempts to align with Hogarth's A Rake's Progress, which tells the story of a young man's decline and fall.
