The Happiness Industry


This image is a reworking of this post - I decided to actually include one of the people they mentioned in the newspaper article, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I don't really have anything against Oprah - I don't watch her show - but I'm hoping that the idea of her as a cheerleader for happiness is pretty accurate.

Yeah! The books and the oprah cheerleader give context to the illustration. There was something missing in the original one, but I couldn't put my finger on it. I was also confused by the hands.

Now I really like the hands - they seem like they could be holding up a book, or maybe the person is throwing their hands up in frustration/confusion.
