Twilight Fan Art ZOMG!!??!



I have a tolerate/hate relationship with the Twilight series. Stephanie Meyer graduated from my school, yet i don't consider her a strong writer. Her series is sappy, trashy and tasteless, yet i can't deny her success among the masses AND in synthesizing some likable stereotypes. It has the freshness of taking place in the Pacific Northwest and featuring an extremely less-known First Nation tribe, but at the same time perpetuates some horrible cultural notions about relationships, gender roles, and materialism.
In short, i attempted to convey in my drawing of Bella Swan and Alice and Edward Cullen how i perceive Twilight: Absurdly silly.

I particularly enjoyed showing Edward as a creepy psycho... because he is.

Love it. Good written take on Twilight, too.

Alice Cullen looks familiar.
