    This is an illustration used for an English class poster advertising a course in Banned and Censored Books. It features two characters from the studied texts, American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman (by Bret Easton Ellis) and Nabokov’s title character, Lolita, in a sort of True Romance mashup breaking free from a locked-up book. Lolita’s sprinkler scene mirrors Bateman’s blood-spatter scene.
