Satirical illustration examples
Articles of contemporary news:
I decided to choose news that comes from the country of residence. Even though most of these articles have been written a few years ago, there has been a lot talk about it recently since the police have admitted to wrong doing in the case. This is most likely because of last week another wealthy Thai teen killed some one from drunk driving and has not been charged. This article has come out and all th eother cases are being brought up from outrage. Headline “Bangkok’s ‘deadly rich kids’ get away with Murder’
The biggest news comes from a few years back, the redbull heir who killed a police officer and most likely bribed the police officers at thonglor police station (i can see this from my house) and was able to flee the country. He never showed up to his court hearings due to being unwell in Singapore. So far there has been no justice served. Because of his status and the ability to create a satirical image with a very well known drink brand ‘Red Bull’ I decided to create my illustration based on this.
