I made a comic with pretty much the same punchline as this other comic I made maybe no one will notice


Super quickly drawn doodle comic of a very important realization.

*UPDATE: This boob comic has become my most popular post on tumblr, surpassing things that took me months to make. Who would have thought touching your boob at 3AM could bring such glory

Taking stock of today’s art world: “The artist has undergone an enormous increase in value, to the point of idolization. But success has come at a high price, with the power of the art system, the adjustment to taste guidelines, and the dependence on galleries and curators. To create something new all one’s own, while remaining in the game, is a balancing act that only few succeed at mastering.”

Rare photo of an 8 year-old Helen Keller with her teacher Anne Sullivan. Taken in 1888, it is possibly the first photo of the two together. It was lost for 120 years, only rediscovered in March 2008


The image, released by the New England Historic Genealogical Society, was taken 120 years ago and shows an eight-year-old Keller holding the hand of Anne Sullivan, whose legacy is almost as important. She was the teacher who first taught Keller how to understand and articulate language. More important still for Keller scholars, the black and white photograph shows her holding in another hand a doll. The word “doll” was the first Keller ever spoke - the fruit of her lessons from Ms Sullivan, whose technique included spelling out words on the palm of the little girl’s hand.

The picture, apparently taken at Cape Cod in July 1888, was found in an album by Thaxter Spencer, 87, whose mother was a childhood friend of Keller. Mr Spencer donated the album and other items including diaries and letters to the genealogical society last June (2007). However, the group did not notice the particular photograph until now (March 2008).

Canola oil was originally called rapeseed oil, but rechristened by the Canadian oil industry in 1978 because it was hard to sell something with rape in the name. “Canola” is short for “Canadian oil.”
