Rich Boys Get Big Toys

Rich Boys Get Big Toys

Rachel Blackwell

This illustration was inspired by the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States and the harm that could be caused by his authority and wealth. I began researching vintage toy ads and found Lego posters from the 80's which I decided to place Trump within to make a mockery of his childish behaviour. The satirical style of illustration is an effort to try and find humour in the ridiculousness of his character, however daunting his position of power may be to society.
