Fifty is not so nifty - Globe & Mail

Here’s a piece of mine that printed in yesterday’s Globe & Mail (yay Canada!). The illustration goes along with an existential essay about aging. It discusses the dramatic change of how young adults socialize and present themselves compared to ‘old days’. The essay also tells some other truths like how when your fifty you still feel like your thirty and so on. I really wanted the image to be a collection of young people surrounding an older gentlemen in the background. To get the mood across I wanted the vines that scale the wall to start growing around him to push the idea of him aging and possibly becoming irrelevant. Big thanks the new Facts and Arguments AD, Matt French, for asking me to work on this with him.
