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.)
