Pig Pen vs. the Grim Reaper
Posted in the Arts Forum
#1 Sep 8, 2012
The Grim Reaper is a timeless mythological avatar that represents death and deterioration.
Pig Pen is an affable but dingy child avatar in the pleasant fictional American folk tale world of Charlie Brown and his Peanuts friends.
The Grim Reaper evokes fears of terrorism and failure, while Pig Pen represents natural everyday anxieties about hygiene and friendship.
In some ways Pig Pen and the Grim Reaper are alike, since they both characterize health fears, but Pig Pen is more representative of ornamentation design in the art world, perhaps reflecting the self-loathing idealized symbolism in the sinister Hollywood (USA) movie "Malice" (1993).
Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?
