I really enjoyed this unique piece of work. The title is very powerful. Although this poor boy's appearance is far from ideal, without the necessary repairs made, I can't imagine what he would've looked like before and thank goodness, we don't have to.
Como de que trata. acazo es de importancia la raza del nino? por que si en casi todas las peliculas han sido medio racistas. O que onda? cuenta aparte esta muy bien super padre lo que es el dibujo en si. Lindos detalles
Me refiero a que si tiene algun significado que el nino sea de de raza morena, y que su rostro este parcialmente destrozado, y que varios personajes de television americanos lo rodeen. Osea hay conneccion entre su raza y la industria cinematografica americana?
This completely deserves the DD. Not only is it just amazingly and skillfully drawn and shaded, but it has this....shocking, dark, outstanding message... A little boy, mangled and traumatized, dreaming of Disney cartoons, wanting to be as happy and carefree as them. And then, to look over and see the crucified Mickey in the "More from cifuso" section of the page, it just ties it all together.
I love this piece, because it seems to take a reality that not many of us think about and just shoves it in your face. The disney characters add a dimension that I can't quite explain, but they seem to pull the last bit of essence out of the child. Amazing piece of work.
