I made this poster in light of the outcome of the 2016 election. Many believe, myself included, that the results were due to the majority of the electorate getting informed by basically biased, yellow journalism online, fitting whatever belief they want to read and not reading any other viewpoints.
This concept brought up to mind Plato's "Allegory of the Cave," which was the main inspiration of this tabloid poster. I did the drawing on the bottom with Photoshop and a Wacom tablet.
The inclusion of the drawing was inspired by the posters of Paul Rand, who would often feature personalized drawings on his posters.
