In these series of illustrations, you will see how all of us have somehow become slaves to modern technology – particularly the smartphone.

Sure, we can all justify how we all use gadgets to communicate faster with our loved ones but, as captured in some of these drawings, we should likewise admit that technology sometimes gets in the way of simple joys such as enjoying nature or real-life interactions.
