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, 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.
