These Honest and Powerful Illustrations Show The Problem of Our Modern Life


Jean Jullien is a renounced French illustrator currently living in London. His favorite subject is the ways in which modern society’s increasing dependence on phones and social networks is often interpreted mistakenly as signs of a real connection between people.What makes Jean’s work so wonderful is the rich does of irony and sarcasm he adds to every illustrations.

We put together some of his best illustrations that really make us think about many of the absurdities of our urban society  and our way of life — above all, about how much we depend on all this fancy, yet alienating, technology. Maybe it’s time to put down your iPad and start a real conversation instead?
