 "I saw—with shut eyes, but acute mental vision—I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together. I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some powerful engine, show signs of life and stir with an uneasy, half-vital motion. Frightful must it be, for supremely frightful would be the effect of any human endeavor to mock the stupendous mechanism of the Creator of the world."  Frankenstein

Mockupations
 
Mockupations Logo for web3.png

Mockupations is a series of satirical characters that affords us the opportunity to strap on the old Jack boots and do some emotional puddle-jumping, treading rather aggressively on topics that would otherwise demand delicate posturing. The catharsis provided but such an invitation and activity includes not only laughter, and thus good unto itself, but also a sense that we may in some way come to terms with that which ails our community or humanity. Albeit macabre in nature, the birth and life of these straw men are an exercise in living fiction, like an orphanage of inflatable monsters in need of a little yard time to let loose. Without such an opportunity, we might just find ourselves in a world too afraid to laugh at our own fragility.
