Craig Horky farms out his consciousness-destroying illustrations to sweat shop labor in developing countries, where children as young as 9 have developed arthritis from painstakingly reproducing three-headed foxes and Abe Lincoln skulls. When they can no longer draw, they wander the streets raving of the things they have been forced to imagine. Craig Horky must be stopped.
