This comic will change the way you look at privilege forever

Toby Morris is an Auckland-based illustrator, art director, comic artist and recently the author of Don’t Puke On Your Dad: A Year in the Life of a New Father.

We recently came across his latest work, titled “On a Plate” that was published at The Wireless.

The debate surrounding class and privilege can get muddled, but Morris’s comic has an astounding way of blasting the truth of how the social class a person is born into can have a direct effect in the outcome of their lives, and how the cliché of “pulling yourself up by your bootstraps” is a gross oversimplification of the human experience.

The end will hit you right in the gut.
