The Ripple Effect of Student Debt

Editorial-Illustration-Mixed-Media-Student-Debt-Graduate-Drowning

 

All my experimentation is starting to pay off. This illustration is about the far-reaching effects of student debt in this country. The whole issue is such a shame and really hits home for my husband and myself who will likely be paying student loans for several decades to come.

These days I’m using a heavily mixed-media technique. At the moment it’s more time consuming than my previous work, but as I do it more I’m sure I will be able to speed things up. One of the biggest challenges with incorporating more digital aspects to the work is the sheer amount of choices you have when choosing colors and layer effects. It takes real experience to sort out what looks best and what looks the way YOU want it to look. I’m quite happy with this piece and I’m looking forward to continuing the growth of my work with each piece.

As per usual, this piece is available as a print here.
