“...a vision of the so-called Modern Man waiting in line, going nowhere, bothered by some ineffable sense of opportunity unfulfilled.” (source)

Modern Man︎︎︎ is a personal project inspired by Arcade Fire’s track of the same name︎︎︎, created to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its source album, The Suburbs︎︎︎.

The series of illustrations explores the monotony of everyday life, its subsequent collective existential anxiety, and a pursuit of the American Dream that is seemingly unending.
