'It's inhumane, man! Now I can only afford to get wasted three times a week!'
First of my 'Frontline Thoughts' series, for a college project last year.
The idea of this series is that it's hypothetical interviews from 2012 with students telling how the rise in tuition fees has affected them. I thought that since political cartoonists will be asked to satarise just about anything, being able to put aside personal bias and poke fun at one's own demographic is an important skill.
Being the cynic that I am, I had a lot of fun taking the piss out of students, especially as they need so little exaggeration.
This guy is based very closely on an ex-housemate.
