Author: The Italian illustrator’s warm, grainy style beautifully captures the weirdness of social media.
We all use Facebook. We’re all also – after reports of associated depressive symptoms, complete lack of privacy and the general ruin of productivity – a little scared of Facebook.
Italian illustrator Giovanna Giuliano clutched at that fear, mulled it over, and out popped a fun, beautiful – but still creepy - set of illustrations, People on FB, showing us as social media users, the reality behind the mask and how everything, from emotions to our day-to-day activities, are overly simplified on Facebook.
Though Giovanna used to be a graphic designer (graduating from the Fine Arts Academy in Venice) and prefers the clean and clear, she has since embraced grainy, slightly disconnected illustration – and it clearly suits her style, whilst retaining the elegance she’s always loved.
