|Apr-25-15|| ||HeMateMe: That's cute. How does she get predator birds to come so close to her?|
|Apr-26-15|| ||zanzibar: <HMM> I think she has a dead mouse tucked behind her right ear...|
|Apr-26-15|| ||HeMateMe: or something like this:
|Apr-26-15|| ||zanzibar: Um, <HMM>, is that where Winnie went to hide to evade arrest by the Russian authorities?|
You are aware that the photo is an abuse of the orange and black colors of St. George's Ribbon?
Flagrantly abusing such Soviet patriot colors have gotten others arrested, and even imprisoned:
|Apr-26-15|| ||HeMateMe: I don't think it's a nationalistic insignia, <zans>. Maybe this, from Art Spiegelman?|
|Apr-27-15|| ||zanzibar: As for orange and brown below the belt, I think I'll adopt a hands off policy.|
Turning to Spiegelman's work - I have both Maus I and II on my bookshelves. Very powerful works, of course, widely recommended.
They have to be read at two levels all at once; historically, from the perspective of the father, and pyschologically, from that of the son.
I have to comment that the first artwork you linked is definitely not my idea of Spiegelman-style.
But then again... here's Spiegelman portraying himself:
He mentions several foreign translations of Maus. I found this cover art for what I believe is a French version (emecÚ):
This also doesn't really look right to me.
|Apr-28-15|| ||HeMateMe: I bought Maus when it was first published, I think in the mid 80s, at least that's when I got my copy. Very strange, to see a comic book about the Nazi death camps, but done to be informative, at least as regards the emotions of those involved.|
Did he ever have a big success with anything else? I never heard about him again.
|Apr-28-15|| ||zanzibar: <HMM> You must be one of the few New Yorkers who doesn't religiously read the New Yorker. |
His wiki page gives a good rundown, including some controversy Rall.
But no doubt, Maus is still his greatest achievement. Probably always will be.
|Apr-28-15|| ||HeMateMe: I've never found the New Yorker to be interesting, except that I like the cartoons.|
|Apr-28-15|| ||HeMateMe: Paulina Gretzky shoot:
|Apr-29-15|| ||zanzibar: I did a google search on <Gretzky chess> and came up with this:|

|May-01-15|| ||zanzibar: It's enough to set a zamboni on fire:
|May-01-15|| ||zanzibar: Not to worry, help is on the way:
|May-08-15|| ||zanzibar: Two fer one,
or is it Number 1 for TV 2?
What does the future hold for that pairing?
|May-09-15|| ||zanzibar: Here is a fantastic chess-inspired piece of art:
It's entitled <Queening Pawn> by Carina Jorgensen.
I originally found it on Ginsburg site, but he attributes it to a site that is stale:
Credit where credit due, I'm glad to have found the original artist.
|May-09-15|| ||zanzibar: Oh, in case you're too lazy to follow the link, here is her description of the piece:|
<Description: A queening Pawn! Pawn Queen sounds rather suspicious, doesn't it? By the way, that says "Enter" on the crown, but apparently people are getting lost at the intro page, because it's not obvious! LOL! It's also interesting to note that Pawns can never look/go back until they are Queens or otherwise promote into another mobile piece. Then, the only thing they can't do, is remain a Pawn! How cool is that? So I guess this one is having her first ever look over her shoulder. It's not a Queen's outfit though, I wonder what that would look like?>
|May-09-15|| ||HeMateMe: I like the Queening Pawn. It's very sensuous, yet not pornographic.|
|May-10-15|| ||HeMateMe: China's funeral strippers:
I've always wanted to go out with a bang...
|May-11-15|| ||john barleycorn: <HeMateMe: ...
I've always wanted to go out with a bang>
But when in the coffin it is a bit late by common standards.
