Author and illustrator Richard Scarry penned some of the most iconic children’s books of the past few decades, like the Busytown series about animals doing human jobs in a pretend town. More than 100 million of Scarry’s books were sold, and his work was turned into all sorts of television shows, movies and video games.
Now, artist Tony Ruth is honoring Scarry’s legacy with a series of scathing satirical illustrations showing how the legendary illustrator might pen Silicon Valley stereotypes. Ruth’s new series, “Businesstown,” features such Valley staples as the Patent Troll, the Digital Prophet, the Thought Leader and more.
