Business Insider published this graphic as part of an article they did summarizing the McKinsey report which featured disruptive technologies that are impacting the global economy.
This should also serve as a call of caution to the future role, and shape to come, of labor. Many of these seem to be a precursor to rising unemployment.

“American Royalty” - Illustrations by Sam Spratt commissioned by Childish Gambino
Limited Edition Prints Available: royalty.samspratt.com
So, I’m pretty excited to finally share with you my full project with Actor/Writer/Rapper Donald Glover. What began as cover art for his last album “Royalty” evolved into a series of Rockwell-esque vignettes on Americana meant to highlight the side of hip-hop that tends to take a back seat to “money, cars, and jewelry” – where you come from.
The collection of 10 illustrations cover a wide-spectrum of the little moments – the struggles, the simple pleasures, the risks, the irony, the humor, the hopes, and the realities of the American life that maybe isn’t quite so cookie cutter. For me, this was a rare privilege to both work with an insanely talented person as well as learn an IMMENSE amount in the process of creating scenes completely outside of my bubble. All of these are available as extremely limited edition, signed, numbered, archival art prints at royalty.samspratt.com and a video interview on the project with Complex/Masked Gorilla is here.
A huge thanks to Funfere Koroye, who assisted and modelled for me on “Summer” and “Royalty”
