Are We Different? What a question.

Two adorable critters are having a serious discussion on the subject of whether or not they are different. Seriously? They are like night and day. They are not people or goblins or menacing anythings. They are just critters wondering why they don’t fit in? So tell me who fits the norm if we can agree that they certainly are different.

When I was placing tags on this image it was very hard. It’s an abstract thought. The illustration is about prejudice and bigotry. It’s about purple and green skin on fantasy beings. It’s about a sky that has a spherical illumination in a world that is truly dark. I remember in the early 1980’s there were a lot of people writing about multi-culturalism and how we ought to be giving this a lot of focus in our schools for our future generations. The authors described this as a new focus on an inspirational world where mores would change. Peoples would be migrating north they said. I remember that quote specifically. That was then and this was now. What has changed? What have we accepted? What remains the same? So I think my new efforts in designing are moving to writing 4 lines of poetry with accompanying drawings. I’m liking that idea. Here’s the link to these guys on tshirts.
