The new year brings with it new exhibitions, and this is my submission for the MA Graphics exhibition at Camberwell. The subject of the exhibition is Disappearing. The title of my work is "Up In Smoke" and was inspired by the fact that when I looked through a selection of newspapers for reports on the situation in Palestine, I could find very little, but I could find endless columns about the comings and goings of multitudes of vacuous celebrities.
I created the drawing by hand and then scanned and coloured it in Photoshop, adding collaged newspaper articles into the smoke. I printed the final work on a sheet of newsprint paper.
