For the longest time, I’ve found myself completely unmoved by landmarks.
Facing away from the Pyramids of Giza, “in the mid-distance I saw a newly constructed golf course, its fairways an intense green,” he told Creative Boom.
Wayne Mavin faces a long prison term after admitting a string of sex offences against a 13-year-old girl.
But he posted a selfie with the words: “Does this face look bothered.
no couldn’t give a f***.”Mavin, 24, of Blyth, Northumberland, admitted to grooming, engaging in sexual activity with a child aged under 14 and inciting a child under 14 to send indecent images.
Newcastle Crown Court heard he had been grooming the girl through social media. Mavin’s offences have already led him to be placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register and he is banned from unsupervised access to any females aged under 18.
A source said: “This picture is going to be brought to the attention of the judge when sentencing occurs.“It shows he has no remorse for his victim and no respect for the criminal justice system.“The judge could take this into consideration and give him a longer sentence.When journalist Anne Elizabeth Moore set out to report an investigative series on the garment industry and sex trafficking, she said she immediately discarded the idea of doing traditional long-form articles in favor of something more visual — specifically, comics."I've been writing about the garment industry and worker conditions in Cambodian factories and worker conditions at fast fashion factories for years," she says. It's about being able to depict the heretofore unimaginable.""Threadbare: Clothes, Sex and Trafficking," released this month by Microcosm Publishing, gathers a collection of monthly reports that were originally featured on the news site as part of Moore's comics journalism series "Ladydrawers." The book isn't the first comics journalism effort to land on bookshelves. With comics, we could present the information in a different way.Artists such as Joe Sacco, Susie Cagle and Sarah Glidden have long used illustration to report in-depth stories on political tumult in locations from the Balkans to Syria to Israel."Threadbare" looks at the garment industry — what is essentially one of the top employers of women on the planet, and one with a generally poor track record when it comes to wages and conditions.The collected reports look at the history of the trade, the lives of those employed in it (from sweatshop workers to retail staff to models) to the high human cost of fast fashion — which has put pressure on manufacturers to churn out ever cheaper clothes at ever faster rates. "They physically cannot keep up with the workload.""Threadbare's" drawings by Leela Corman, Julia Gfrörer, Simon Häussle, Delia Jean, Ellen Lindner and Melissa Mendes allow Moore to engage with readers about complex (and often dry) material that would be infinitely more difficult to communicate with words alone.A story called "Zoned," for example — told in five comic book pages and fewer than a dozen cells — looks at the complicated role of foreign trade zones in the international garment trade.
