The suns, moons, and stars of our celestial collection are so powerful because of how instantly recognizable they are. Tony has called his Moonface, in particular, the “moon of the collective unconscious.” Even though it’s an entirely original creation, everyone who sees it thinks they’ve seen it before. Actually, it’s the moon face Tony himself thought he saw years ago in Victorian children’s books. When he went looking, though, he couldn’t find exactly the image he had in mind. So he just made it him- self. The Crescent Moonface followed as a logical next step, and it is also an iteration of a classic image from 19th century illustration. His perspective is reminiscent of Maxfield Parrish, N. C. Wyeth, and the early animation of Winsor McCay.
