The fact that people’s potential is stifled is perhaps a consequence of being part of a larger system that will not allow uniqueness to blossom if it poses a threat to the system. Ideologies are drilled in and individuality is painted over till one becomes a mere gear in the mechanism that perpetuates certain ideas in society. After all, one is just another cog in the machine. This comic was created using mixed media on an A4 sized white cartridge sheet.
