Today at Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls we are doing Dystopian films.  For those of you who don't know what that is (which I didn't either when I got the assignment), here is the definition.

A dystopia (from the Greek δυσ- and τόπος, alternatively,
cacotopia,[1] kakotopia, cackotopia, or anti-utopia) is

the vision of a society that is the opposite of utopia. A dystopian society is often a planned structured society in which the conditions of life are deliberately made miserable, characterized by poverty, oppression, violence, disease, scarcity, and/or pollution for the benefit of a select minority or some unnatural societal goal.

I chose Planet of the Apes.  I found this great image online.  It was from a coloring book.  I colored it with Copics.  All the paper is generic and I distressed it with my Tim Holtz distress tool.  I think it came out pretty darn good.  My friend thinks it looks like her husband.  I don't think so.

Please head over to Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls and play along.  I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Thanks for stopping by.
