Shooting by Pedro Burgos (Mini Kus! #104)

Shooting uses an array of lean lines and languid figures to subtly examine how attitudes shift depending on our perspective, as well as thematic elements like commercialism and voyeuristic tendencies in our society. I particularly enjoyed the way Burgos depicts speech balloons, with open-ended tails that don't quite connect to the figures speaking the words. I'm not sure if this was a deliberate artistic choice, but it seemed to show how we are often times disconnected from our own thoughts, and merely inhabiting roles, going through the motions based on preconceived personas or external expectations. I also enjoyed the two-color approach, using cool blues for heavier elements like clothing, dark hair, and backgrounds, while using a beige/yellow to depict shadow, lighting on faces, and movement.
