Focus: Where is Mass Media Taking Our Attention?

From the multiple conflicts in northern Africa, the tsunami and earthquake in Japan, ongoing economic problems in the US and more… it seems strange that the media would give so much attention to the situation with Andrew Weiner. In his newest contribution to Visual News, Robbie Douglas created a piece centering on this issue and it’s alternate options, stating: “I wanted to address the focus that’s been on him and his questionable but legal behavior rather than on more important matters.” We couldn’t agree more.

The piece was drawn with Hb and 6b pencils, using tortillions on Bristol vellum. If you like this drawing, check out one of Robbie’s other contributions “Killswitch” which touches on the issue of our surprisingly fragile internet.
