“Noble Savages is an illustration/mini comic series about escaping societal norm. Each comic tells a story about humans turning into animals to entertain their most simplistic desires. This series of work questions the notion of anthropocentrism. It depicts the gradual loss of self as a result of the stress imposed on individuals by modern society. The transformation of the characters from human to animals indicates the process of the protagonists’ self-awakening and finding their true nature. It serves as an analogy for human behavior when they are unshackled from the stress and anxiety from career and life.”
