Art mirroring life


Anyone who has been an illustrator, painter, cartoonist or writer understands that art mirrors life as we know it, or does it? In today’s world we see many things in reality mirroring things we thought to be things of fantasy like cell phones, Skype and FaceTime. In Star Trek we see Captain Kirk using what is now known as a cell phone.

 Did you know that in the book 1984 by George Orwell it went on to described how our country, the USA, would set up systems to spy on its citizens? Here we are today, 2015 as I write this, what do we see but systems put in place to spy on us the US citizen. When Edward Snowden revealed what our government was doing to its citizens, through the patriot act of 2001 (The “UN” patriot act), it came as no suprise to me that the patriot act would be used to spy on us. We must take it upon our selves to learn all we can so that we do not fall victim to those forces who wish to victimize and control us. 

What does that have to do with art and illustration? Well, as stated before, I love comic books and many of the stories portrade in them by graphic novel style. Many of the issues we are discussing today seem like many of the stories I read in the comic books. For example, Anthropamorphism, which is a character that is half animal and half human like the wolf man, would seem like something that is made up in fantasy but apparently there are scientists seeking permission from Englands government to go ahead and start splicing dna, humans with animals, so that some sort of freak hybrid can be concockted. Here is an article from the Daily Mail reporting that Scientists have created more than 150 human-animal hybrid embryos in British laboratories. Read more by clicking onto the link:
The hybrids have been produced secretively over the past three years by researchers looking into possible cures for a wide range of diseases. I say HA, to that. Man kind is a fallen creature and this will eventually lead to something very bad. Again, just look at the spying going on. First they said that the spying program was to go after terrorists and to protect U.S. citizens. Last time I checked, I am not a terrorist; I am an American Citizen just trying to make it day by day so why are they spying on me?

The super soldier project we read about in the Marvel Comics is a concept that has been around since the 1930’s and started with Hitlers Germany. All of these Comic book stories do have a grain of truth in reality to them.

The WATCHERS from the marvel comics fame comes from the book of Enock, where Enock calls the fallen angels watchers. Also, in the book of Genesis chapter six we read about the Nephilim, which are a half human half demon giants, and this is the reason why Jesus destroyed the earth in a flood.

As pointed out, we are truly seeing Art resmble life and vise versa.

I plan to have more on this fun topic.
