Howlett's painting work depicts a fragmented amalgamation of cartoony narratives that form social commentaries exploring what it means to be human in today's world.
His graphite and charcoal drawings feature characters which act out scenarios reflecting collective anxieties and social conditions. Howlett humorously borrows commonly used phrases from emails and text messages which either appear in the image or as a title for the work. Characters are often without eyes nose or a mouth, their perfectly combed hair and neatly zipped up clothing contradict their grotesque features.
