The inspiration of this short comic is from Paulo Freire’s Banking Concept of Education. I find myself relating to this topic because I am from a country where a good career is determined by only good grades in school. In order to achieve that mentality, lots of young creative artists who want to pursuing a career in art the arts have to give up on their dream. I wanted to create this comic piece to express my opinion on Banking Concept of Education. — Yifan Zhang
