A thought provoking series of illustrations titled ” 21st Century” that focuses on the Youth and Social Media by Jeffrey Otieno.
Here his synopsis, “He named this project ’21st Century’ because these are things that are currently happening in this era. Our generation (youth) is so obsessed with social media. Everybody wants a certain life style, fame, money. Many are lost in drugs, alcohol and crime chasing that cool life “swaag” and fast money, and really don’t take time to build their lives and careers. Nobody wants to work and endure for success”
