Are Millennials Killing Celebrities?



Malibu, CA - The death of rock legend Tom Petty has some people wondering if celebrities are another victim of the millennial invasion.

It’s no secret that millennials have killed the print industry, the nightclub industry, the real estate market, and even the doorbell industry. With the recent influx of celebrity deaths, the snowflake generation has been put in the nation’s crosshairs again.

“You know I’m getting really sick of this,” says Howard Mendel, a baby boomer who graduated college in 1974 and immediately found a job making today’s equivalent of $73,000. “They’re lazy, they’re obnoxious, and now they’re killing all my favorite celebrities. Millennials are running this country into the ground!”

Millennials have denied these accusations, citing the fact that they don’t make enough money to move out of their parents’ house, let alone kill high value targets like Hugh Hefner and Chester Bennington.

I’m updating an old natural science illustration to make it more accurate, because I want to apply for a relevant illustration internship. (The old one is the bottom/2nd image) I figured if I want to apply to a science illustration internship I need to have relatively accurate anatomy on it first. 

So an American Robin nest at feeding time– I really like the style of the illustration overall, but the original was lacking a lot of detail due to my deadlines, and was mildly incorrect. I added hatchling down and corrected the pin feather formations– I’ve been correcting the adult robin plumage and details and building up more of the tree forms. I feel like the down on the hatchlings is a bit distracting but then again it’s realistic, so I’ll leave it be.
