Modern life really is rubbish as Jersey Milk Cow’s brilliant illustrations of former Britpop stars dealing with the mundane aspects of everyday life can attest. In his series, ‘Stars of the Britpop Era Encounter Inner City Pressure,’ the illustrator captures his subjects with uncanny simplicity and also alerts us to the very real catastrophes any number of our idols may experience every day. The creator described the implications of his work: ‘In the late 90′s everyone suffered from pre-millennium tension. Now, over ten years later, these poor people continue to suffer the stresses and strains of modern day city living in the 21st century.’ Here is just a small selection of the series.
