The death of privacy

Google yourself. I dare you. The privacy and anonymity that was cherished in the past is now gone. With facebook, twitter and blogs people are leaving their words all over the internet. Although this is great for communicating with friends and self-promotion, what is the cost on a person’s public identity? Will we be defined by the words we publish, no matter how big or small? How will future employers, friends and acquaintances see you? Will that facebook rant from ten years ago come back to haunt you? These are all scary questions, so before you hit that publish button be ready for your words to come under the looking glass.

The sketches

For this illustration I started with some simple doodles. I drew, traced and refined the mouse shape, and scribbled some swatches to use for texture. Later I digitized using live-trace and the pen tool.

What’s in the download

Included in this download are the desktop wallpapers, and a vector resource file. The file includes the pieces I used to create this digital illustration, plus some bonus scribble textures. If you would like something else to be included in the file, please let me know in the comments.
