I was commissioned to illustrate a piece for Vanguard’s cover story on how political accountability has affected our government's capacity to get things done. The writer posited that lobbyists were taking advantage of these checks and balances, making it more difficult for officials to draft and execute new reforms and public works.

Don't let society dictate the way you should be.
