It’s interesting to see how subtle errors in a representation can cause the mood to veer from jolly to sinister. At the time of this pancake, I hadn’t yet understood my limits when drawing eyes. I watched my son eat this pancake and I slept easier that night knowing that evil had been defeated.
Martiros seemed unaffected by the evil bunny, so I’m glad for that. Perhaps it’s that he has a more flexible attitude toward inaccurate drawings. Or, perhaps he’s not afraid of evil. What we fear in others is what know is worst about ourselves and children are wonderfully free of self-knowledge.
