Tin Toy Kids T-Shirts
As the machine uprising is almost inevitable at some point, I thought I’d get in their good graces early. Maybe I’ll be spared for a little while! I had happened upon a book of North Korean propaganda posters at my local library. I was amused at the messages that tried convince individuals that being drones in a larger machine was the ideal way to succeed in all things, and the ultimate expression of patriotism, and that even milking your goat can be an act of defiance against your oppressors. The idea of using these messages to encourage passion and unity in true emotionless drones was titillating and lead to this piece.

Everyone has "their" Doctor; the one they grew up with - mine was the Fifth - the youthful, intrepid Doctor with his faithful robot dog K9. I also loved Herge's Adventures of Tin Tin - the story of a youthful, intrepid reporter and his faithful dog Snowy. Seemed a good match for a t-shirt mashup!
