“As society’s brutality and smoldering anger fueled by fear berate the once innocent mind of the 'monster,' murky shades of green poison streak across his face, forcing out the pure chocolate undertones. Color plays a monumental part as the green represents the malice of society and brown, the smooth untouched and oblivious innocence. The stark vertical lines of green lay like slashes across the face and not only move the eye down the page, but also display an unnerving reality: the effect of society. Just as the saying goes, 'You are what you eat,' the monster embodies what it is fed: hatred. The face is, ironically, proportionally correct. Often times society forgets the similarities and preys on the differences; this has been proven to be true countless times in the past and present, an example being racial discrimination. This reminds us all that a monster is not born, but built.”
