Broken Telephacts

About this thesis

"Just like stories and rumours, when statistics are told time after time, they take on a new form and message. In combination with numbers, statistics hold an aura of truth. By illustrating misleading statistics, Broken Telephacts underline the absurd nature of these claims."

These images are the thesis work I've done for the Bachelor's of Design degree in Illustration at OCAD University. These series won the Applied Arts student illustration series award. In order, the images are about:
1)Rate of teen pregnancy is higher in religious states.

2)On average, a person swallows 8 spiders per year in their sleep.

3)You must drink 8 glasses of water everyday.

4)Humans only use 10% of their brain capacity.

5)The average woman swallows 6lbs of lipstick in her lifetime.

6)Super Bowl Sunday increases spousal abuse by 8%.

7)Natural blonde and blue eyed people will be extinct in 200 years.


These images' line works were done by hand, coloured digitally with found textures.
