For my Conceptual Process (creative thinking) class I had to mash up 2 cultural icons and the piece has to say something, i couldnt mash-up two similar icons like Gandhi and Yoda (both wise and old, etc.). I ended up using three (oopsie), but heck the teacher loved it so I got the green light!
Cultural icons used: Mickey Mouse, Darth Vader, and Francisco Goya's 'Saturn Devouring His Son'.
my piece is a commentary on how Disney is 'consuming' Lucasfilms. Many people don't approve... Disney you monster! (lol) I should probably also say I love Disney, but this idea worked too well to pass up!
also, I know mickey's body is black, but I went with tan because otherwise he would have been too dark for the background, i can barley make his ears out as it is ... I may re-do those.
