The TMI Files. Art Attack.Just for Dan, who comments on Magilla's remarkable ability to spin a yarn.
While I agree with the Bulwer-Lytton analogy, the thing to remember is that she is 9 and he was..... a lot older.
Anyway, she's also a top-notch artist. Particularly where political hacktivism could be concerned.
She's been picking up the propaganda from school quite nicely, but also seeing through it as in the case of her school friends who are not allowed to wear shorts in summer because it's against their religion. "It's not fair in summer, and the boys are allowed to wear shorts."
Who on earth thinks that kids are stupid? They're little sponges and will soak up more than you expect.
Especially in the schoolyard where they see the double standards that are being applied around them.
This is not a comment on the school policy, by the way. The school is very accommodating of the differing cultures in our area of outer-eastern Boganland, and I've only had to make any comments to the teachers a few times (once for 'Japanese people are evil because they kill and eat whales in Preps, and then earlier last year to suss out the level of politically correct crap to be fed to the kids on a trip to see penguins at the Aquarium.)
Back to the art, however.
This is my current favourite.
Note the attention to detail - even the armpits are hairy. The look of fear on the face of the creature facing its imminent demise along with that of its home.
What's not to love? Greenpeace should give my girl a job.
Mind you, after watching that ad, I think I'm going to have to buy shares in Nestle.
