OriginEdit

Margaret Keane’s paintings are best known for the large eyes she paints on women, children and animals. Many of them have a doe-like gaze and a detectable amount of sadness. In the 60s’ her artwork was sold under her husband Walter, which made everyone believe that he was the artist. Margaret sued him and won by challenging him to a paint-out in court. Walter declined, citing a sore shoulder, whereas Margaret completed her painting in 53 minutes. Later on during her solo career she would be commissioned to paint many celebrity portraits.

EffectsEdit

Gives the user a case of “big eyes”. Looking at the drawings cause the user’s eyes to grow larger, covering up to the top half of their face. Surprisingly, nobody will be shocked by this change and will just accept it as cosmetic or temporary. While affected, the user’s family members will try to pilfer their work and pass it off as their own.
