Mercury Retrograde

When Mercury goes retrograde, misunderstandings, technology failures, and general, some roadblocks in life are expected to happen.

I created this illustration for a social post at Brand New School. The Mercury is backing up the car with a grain of a naughty smile on his face. He is ready to bring massive chaos to the world.

To demonstrate a storm of chaos in space, I combined some 3D elements in the scene, showing the rotating dimension, such as the broken heart, shattered glass, coins, other mysterious objects, and etc. The Ctrl and S keycaps mean to alert you to save your files frequently to avoid missing any data during Mercury Retrograde :P
