Smartphones and Children

by Jill Heesbeen

For the third time Drawing the Times participated in a project of Visual Journalism for students Illustration and Animation from the Art Academy Sint Joost (The Netherlands) in their second year. The students chose a theme to make a visual narrative about. They were asked to show their point of view. It was very interesting to see what young people today care about. A lot of stories had to do with environmental issues, but also with the way society works and social media were topics they were intrigued by.

This story by Jill Heesbeen is about the way we handle our smartphones in front of children.
