This two color illustration entitled “Trial and Error” is part of the ‘Superstition’ t-shirt series. Superstition takes root in the art of story telling. The ancestors of out history’s past spent time around the fire sharing tales of adventure and folk lore. Cultural values were passed on this way as well. In the modern world, the fire has been replaced by corporate media moguls that wield their power on the masses. At the turn of the century, the concept of public relations and marketing became weapons in the arsenals of corporations. American businesses began their quest to manufacture the perfect consumer.
