Artist's Description

“A twonky is a thing what you don’t know what it is” says Coach Trout (Billy Lynn) to Hans Conreid as Kerry West in Arch Oboler’s cult movie adaptation of the seminal science fiction classic THE TWONKY a short story written by Henry Kuttner and C. L. Moore (writing as Lewis Padgett).

I have been devoted and obsessed with the THE TWONKY ever since childhood when I 1st saw it in 1962 on CBS Channel 2’s “The Early Show” in New York. Even at that young age I recognized what Arch Oboler was reaching for by transforming & portraying the THE TWONKY as a television set…

he set in motion the notion that ultimately “The Media” would ultimately want to control us… because it knows better what is good for us… Prophetic and familiar.

This never scared me, instead I have devoted a lot of my time, emotion and creative juices into both celebrating & mocking this THING with cool quirky vintage Pop Art designs born from Classic Iconic & kitchy Baby Boomer images of the Iconic Golden Age of Television

This particular design is also an homage to the Classic Rod Serling 60’s TV SF Fantasy show THE TWILIGHT ZONE!
