From The Creators Project:
Almost by chance, the pair suddenly stumbled upon the potential for something more cohesive. “Tunk had this giant stack of these Frank Netter magazines from the 80s in his studio that I always ogle each time I’m over there, and one day, we started building figurative pieces based off all these outdated pediatric illustrations,” adds Vochatzer. “That, combined with our penchant for natural history and the inherent pieced-together aesthetic of collage art, made these characters that had a real post-civilization and feral-children vibe, so we decided to just keep going with that.”
The decision to frame the project around Lord of the Flies, however, wasn’t an entirely arbitrary decision. “Although it’s a timeless concept, I think the story of lost or abandon children trying to reconstruct some semblance of mythology and civilization is more pertinent now than ever, considering the fragility of times we live in,” says Vochatzer. “Collage, in itself being a reassembling of the often-forgotten fragments of culture and history, is, in a way, the perfect means to communicate this.”
