    Beautiful illustration!

    Sadly this is what the dairy industry looks like today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYTkM1OHFQg

    Maybe you should illustrate current practices of taking calves away from their mothers and leaving them to die of starvation or selling them to the veal industry.

    Maybe the metal confinement they live in threading on their own excrement, being injected with antibiotics to control the infections caused by their living conditions.

    Or perhaps a bleeding teat from over milking by machines?

    Or maybe a killed 8 year old cow who can no longer produce milk and therefore serves no more purpose to the industry.

    Edward, do you really think this is the appropriate forum for discussing such issues?

    Whilst I respect your views, they would be better received elsewhere and not on a design website :)

    @Edward Uhhmmm...if you look at the illustration the woman clearly isn't from around these parts. Perhaps you should investigate her culture and then you may discover that their practices are of cows in grassy pastures who talk about who gets to make chocolate milk and where one cow got their their new spots, or where the best grass grazing spots are.

    You would be wise to not assume. You could offend someone.

    I'm offended by seeing animals being portrayed as happy when the reality of their lives are very different.

    Also, this illustration is likely made to promote the dairy industry in industrialized countries, not where this character comes from (which looks like 19th century Europe)

    Natalie, anywhere is the appropriate place to discuss world issues - especially ones which involve abuse and suffering.

    If I had posted a picture which promoted child labor, I doubt that people would remain quiet about the issue and just comment on the quality of the work. Why should it be any different with other issues?
