The theme for week seventy three of Operation Graphite will be: Devil.

What is a devil, or who is The Devil? Are they malevolent spirits, tricksters and tormenters. Was it the the Shining one, the morning star, the source of light and illumination? The Devil is often seen as the ultimate evil, and any minor devils and demons just tiny minions furthering that malevolent goal. But for some, the devil is a allegory, maybe even a scapegoat; a wrongly accused and slandered being, or a idea to shed our own dark self upon. If we blame a little red devil for our sins, then we can’t be responsible for them ourselves. Once reviled, now the Devil is almost fetishized; a hero for those who want to rebel and give into their darkest desires. Is the devil the outside influence we fear, or the part of ourselves we try to hold back.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Devil.

All art work is due on Thursday 7.18.13 Submissions will be published the following Friday 7.19.13.
