Creating controversy is sometimes necessary in art and design in order to get a point across effectively. This illustration entitled “The Ecstasy of Gold” tackles issues which most humans either fail to or choose to ignore. It is an automatic response that is usually brought on by how uncomfortable reality makes us all feel at times. The reality portrayed in the illustration is the implication of human self-indulgence, from the perspective of struggling artists/designers. This struggle goes further from the atypical financial issues to incorporate emotional/psychological struggles, physical and many others that have an adverse effect on an artist’s health. Although it is very centred on the visual artist, the imagery may apply to struggling artists from both performance and literary fields. Using a portrait orientation the composition is divided into six (6) tiers/stanzas, each showing a different subplot that in their totality, helps to communicate a larger narrative.
