One of popular culture's biggest archetypes is that of the imposing authority figure, typically speaking, teachers. A young adult encounters a number of these authoritative characters such as: Ms. Finster (Disney's Recess), Severus Snape (Harry Potter), and Agatha Trunchbull (Matilda). This illustration explores this archetype in visualizing the perception of a principal as a villainous entity in the reflection of a mirror. This serves to both suggest the real world intentions behind discipline and education and the perception of the adult world as authoritative and imposing in the eyes of a young adult.
