Hacking can touch any kind of people, but why ? Because everyone can be an hacker, internet is not a quiet place, not a quiet web.

This photo talks about the real truth of hacking, the man in black hoodie is a myth and the truth is nearer than you imagine. Unfortunatly, learning about how to hack is very simple to find in internet, and more and more people, become an hacker.

Welcome to the challenge Paul Gautier .Dima here, I am here to support you in the process.

Check out how Mario Ohibsky portrayed the normality of the hacker in his submission Hacker Image ,both of you are working along the same lines! How would you consider pushing your submission further to portray the normality concept? Maybe portraying your main human figure within a crowd in another iteration of your sketch? I would also suggest making the typography a more prominent element in the composition, so we can read it well?
I can’t wait to see how this progresses next, and don't forget to check out Hewlett's tip of the week on the brief page!
