Face Catalog

This image is something that I have been kicking around in my head for a while.

I got the idea a very long time ago from Return to Oz (I think it was.) Dorothy goes back to Oz and a witch decides that Dorothy has a nice head and wants to have it.  Dorothy escapes by rigging together a flying sofa monster.  It also reminded me of an episode of Kino’s Journey.  Kino escapes from a town that (basically) is full of lobotomized adults that are always happy to do whatever their job is.  I think there are also Outer Limit or Twilight Zone episodes about similar things.

What if you could really choose what face to wear every day.  Try that perpetually happy face?  Maybe try one with different features?

A mask for everyday, and never have to show your true self.

… OK we already do that last bit.  What else is social media?  How you want the world to see you, not the real you.


What face will you choose to wear today?

FYI, I think this would be an interesting drawing.  I might work on one when my current project is done.

“She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by-
And never knew.”
Shel Silverstein, Every Thing on It
