IF: Influence

The first thing that came to mind for this was the evil box of influence that sits innocently in the corner of most peoples homes. Though it may have some potential for good it also influences people for the worst and as been a major tool in the dumbing down of society. It also, if we let it steals a lot of our time that would be better spent doing something else.

Rather than just any TV I thought I'd do a nice Orwellian one, someone who foresaw the possibility of screens being everywhere and constantly bombarding us with trivia and propaganda wherever we are.

IF: Imperfect

I grew up watching the old black and white horror films with the likes of Boris Karloff , Bela Lugosi, and Lon Chaney and I still think they capture something that more modern horror films lack.

I'd been thinking of doing an actual painting of this classic image of Karloff's famous interpretation of Frankenstein's monster but I won't have time for that this week so here's a digital version which I thought fit in well with this weeks subject.
