Year of the Samsung Galaxy S8

The Year of the Samsung Galaxy S8 was created for Ty Warren's Digital Drawing Class at the University of Oregon in the Fall of 2016. A reference to the book Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace, the short 6-page comic explores ideas such as social media, consumerism, the millennial generation and youth involvement with world politics. It was inspired by Infinite Jest and a conversation  about Donald Trump in the wake of the 2016 election.

It has been printed as a zine, hand stapled and distributed over the last year on campus and around Eugene. Translation by Camilla Markussen (Find her work here.)
