Todd Schorr - When Fairy Tales Collide - 2008

Todd Schorr claims to be involved in “Cartoon Realism”. It is a paradoxical term that finds sense in our hyper media culture. Since the nascence of television our homes have welcomed a variety of unreal characters. Acceptance and even belief in these avatars play a vital role in contemporary social interaction. Children advance to adulthood learning important lessons from these up to the minute myths. All notions of reality obscure when viewed as the accumulation of these experiences.
