Consumed Ourselves To Death by Ross Robinson

T-Shirts & Hoodies

Available to buy on…

So I was sitting in the QVB the other day watching all of the people rushing about with loads and loads of shopping bags in their hands. Did they really need all of that stuff? How many pairs of shoes do you have to have before you are satisfied? When consuming becomes a recreational activity you know we’re in trouble.

    good stuff, i take it the big shadows are intended to reflect the size and power of these bags?

  • And the long shadows we cast with our actions.

    Totally agree. The shopping centre near me advertises themselves as a day out for the whole family. They have kids amusements and the like. Late in the evening parents are still dragging distraught kids around as they load up the stroller with all the stuff they’ve bought. We used to go to the park …

    This rocks also Ross…what did you make it with BTW?

  • Thanx Rhys. Just Illustrator – drawn using a photo as a guide. Did the text on the bags in Photoshop as the transform tools are better. Put a noise filter over the top and added a transparent shadow.

    Well at least these bags aren’t plastic. ;)

    Nice use of pastel colours.

    But what about consumption of this tee shirt :) ?

  • Damn. The irony of it all. Perhaps I should change the name to “Don’t Buy This Shirt”…

    but maybe the message counter balances the consumption, so your carbon credits are neutral with this one – who knows.
