Artist Andrew Rae illustrates fantastical monsters that are emerging from cell-phones. We all see people who look at their cell-phones’ screens while walking or in a group of people, maybe you are one of those people. Even there are texter sidewalks in some cities in Europe and China. Illustrator Andrew Rae says “I started thinking of the phones as if they’re little pets or creatures and people are tickling their bellies to keep them happy. I mentioned this to my friend Ruskin one day when we were out with our two-year-olds and he liked the idea.”
It is possible to say a kind of deep and important critic in terms of using technological devices. Also, Rae adds, “Instead of replacing the phones,” Rae explains, “I’d draw objects or creatures coming out of the phones and looking back at us. The different styles of the photograph and the drawing would make sense together, as the phone screen is like a portal where the real world and the digital world meet.”
Here are the illustrations that Rae created.
