Here's my fan art for The Dark Crystal. I totally loved that movie as a kid. Such a pleasure to grow into a twisted adult so I can defile it in this way.

I don't understand...

I can't imagine why you't want to defile something from you're childhood. I would prefer to keep the things from my childhood as they were.
...Anyway, I suppose I can't knock the quality of the artwork even if the quality of the subject matter is somewhat lacking for taste.

Abraxa responds:

One big part is that we move into our adulthood and over-idealize our childhood blocking out all the nasty bits of it, the depressing moments, the disgusting parts, pleasurable parts that make our adult selves ashamed, stupid things we'd like to forget, etc...

As an adult I think it's good to move beyond having anything be "sacred" or "pure". I look back on my childhood and I see plenty of instances of sexuality, perversion, pain, discomfort, pleasure, giddiness, etc... I have to admit ALL of the aspects of my childhood as being real and valid (not some fake mental painting that acts like childhood is some kind of undefiled utopia).

In poking fun at things that were precious to us as children, it helps us poke fun at life in general. It helps us to live in this world of mixed pleasure and pain with a sense of humor and "fuck all" attidute towards any ideas or things that set themselves up as "sacred" or "untouchable"! That's how I feel anyways. It's one of the reasons why I think doing things like this is both fun and valuable. Nothing in this world should be "sacred". Nothing should be held as "untouchable" in the realm of ideas and expression.
