Debt is Slavery

Description of idea

Describe your idea and concept of your work in relation to the festival outlines:

Debt is an irritating illness. It may cause pain and suffering to anyone who is not capable of paying his bills on time, or cannot pay them at all. It restricts his freedom. He will be restricted by having that debt load hanging over him. He will be controlled by money. He will be worried and nervous. He will not be able to get ahead financially. Briefly, he will be the slave of debt. In this illustration, I am visualizing the idea of slavery that is caused by debt.
I used the quote “ Debt is the slavery of the free” by Publilius Syrus to add a meaning to the illustration, and I placed it in a way to play a role in the illustration as every part of it does.
