Instagram and Muggles

Post interrupted to help two year old build train set…

Ok, where was I? Maybe I’m over-thinking this but it seems like Instagram is one of those things, much like private car number plates, that are designed to give the user the illusion of individuality – that it is something unique in all the world – whereas it actually makes everyone the same. Of course, the same could be said about my drawing efforts so perhaps I am hoist by my own petard. I guess we are all struggling to stamp some individuality into a short and futile existence amidst the seething infestation of humanity.

Ok, as you were, carry on instagramming…

  1. It’s ironic, this notion of mass individuality. I think many people are terrified of “creativity” and have no idea how to do it or be it. Pressing a button is a much simpler solution than sitting quietly and deciding what to create, when and how.
