Cartoon #1

As part of my blog’s set up I will be posting bi-weekly one panel cartoons highlighting an aspect of advertising as well as a artist statement.

I drew this as a bit of a comparison to what happen to JCPennys back in 2012 with how the group One Million Mom’s reacted to seeing a happy same sex couple as bad for their children.¬†What groups like One Million Moms don’t realise is that there are many other advertisements out there that kids pay far more attention to and have a dangerous effect. My goal with this imagine was to show how silly it is to be targeting the imagine of happy couples rather than imagines of unrealistic body standards.
