The London Hieroglyph

‘Hieroglyph’ - A stylized picture of an object representing a word, as found in ancient Egyptian and certain other writing systems.

This piece of illustration is a sequential narrative running from left to right,
taking you through a 24-hour cycle of a Londoner’s working day. This is a dark but humorous story of the psychological effects that an unfulfilling job has on us and how it makes us behave. From the pain of getting out of bed, the bitterness of the rush-hour, the tyrannical bosses and scheming peers of the work place, to finally the debauchery that ensues when we’ve finally been set free. The drinking, smoking, drugs, and sex that we can often regret in the morning.
