Stuck in Jail

Sometimes I feel trapped. Like a bird in a cage, I am made to depend on the benevolence of my keeper. Other times I'm like a bird in an open cage, refusing to leave the safety of a familiar space. Fear, frustration and loneliness are never far from the mind.

I have also been aware of the ugly statistics regarding the prison industrial complex. This is an important part of the economy for many communities around the world. It is often a merciless machine in which the innocent can get caught in the blink of an eye. Jail is for the bad guy—whether guilty or not.

These three illustrations capture the essence of these ideas. I would appreciate your feedback. You can download watermark-free versions from Stockfuel.
