Fruit of Knowledge by Deep-Hurting Fruit of Knowledge by Deep-Hurting
I had the idea for this awhile ago, and the recent nuclear disaster in Japan finally gave me a reason to use it.

Readers have apparently been more confused by it than expected. My intent was to comment on nuclear technology being sort of a double-edged sword; something with great potential for both good and evil. So, the fruit of "The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil" seemed an appropriate metaphor.

It seems my interpretation of the original story is not common, so people read the cartoon as entirely negative, rather than commenting on both the negative and positive aspects of nuclear technology (and technology in general, really).

Artwise, I'd say this turned out pretty well, considering I didn't have any models for it.

You can view the cartoon on my website here.

Love the concept; even if I don't totally agree with some of the symbolism it contains.

Tech is not good or bad , even the nuclear bomb has good uses ( like save the planet from a big asteroid or alien invasion if we want to be very imaginative :P ). People use it in good or bad ways.

Nice work and i agree with your comment

Oh I got it the moment I saw it... I guess I'm not typical in that respect. ;P

Well done. :D
