Scott Brooks' work reflects the political and economic turmoil that takes up the head space of those who are paying attention. "We the People" maintains the detailed figures and story-telling themes Brooks has become known for, albeit on a much larger scale. In the past, Brooks' message was often subtle, hidden in his elaborate tableaus. In contrast, "We the People" blatantly speaks to the pop-culture-obsessed and politically-charged landscape in which Brooks lives today.
