Angry young Indians: What a waste

Illustrator’s Notes

For this illustration, I wanted to showcase the experience of India’s youth as being represented by the goat pulling a cart. Down below, the goat can see a worse fate for itself in the goat head on a plater. Above is an old gorilla with a gavel, representing the politicians and government, hurtling obstacles for the goat to avoid (feel free to read into the Donkey Kong reference).
