Dan Roam: I am a business guy who comes out of an art background. I have drawn all my life, starting as a little kid. If you think about it, most of us have drawn when we were very young.

The age of notification overload is upon us. The more apps we download on our phones and open on our computers, the more little red flags crop up to remind us of all the information we’re not consuming and things we should be doing. Whereas your phone used to only chime when a loved one was sending you a message, it’s now going off all day, every day: local news, incoming thunderstorms, new lover matches, amber alerts, incoming emails, social media likes, erroneous messages from newspapers. As more and more of these notifications pop up on our phones and desktops, it has allowed us to keep connected to the world 24/7—whether we like it or not.
