This latest tragedy in Connecticut makes me feel helpless. Will our country ever seize control of this horrible gun mess? Small, innocent children are dead. What more can it possibly take?

Cute lil cats in a big bad mech stompin’ some pigs! I haven’t done a watercolor painting in a long time, so I thought I’d try my hand at it again. I think I might make this a series.

Evan Palmer, good gravy. More here. Wowee zowee. Oh and this, holy crap!

Cartoonist Gabrielle Bell is doing watercolor portraits over Skype. They&#8217;re tiny and amazing, and $35 I think. This might be the best possible use for Skype, although the scientific research isn&#8217;t in yet.
More from Gabrielle at her site, and her new book The Voyeurs is available from Uncivilized Books, as well as all good bookstores.

I didn’t know cartoonist and illustrator Lilli Carré had a tumblr of just animations, but now I do, and so do you. Holy mackerel! I’m in the middle of finishing her new book Heads or Tails, after which I’ll write a review. Spoiler alert: it’s fantastic.

My friend and yours Mike Mitchell has a lot of talents, but he&#8217;s particularly good at revisiting iconic images&#8212;or even just clothes&#8212;in a way that&#8217;s respectful and gently mocking at the same time. His current series of &#8220;SUPER&#8221; prints, modeled after the classic Superman pose, is available until midnight tonight (December 4th 2012) as a grab bag. I have some of Mike&#8217;s prints, enough actually that it&#8217;s starting to get a little creepy. Mike&#8217;s shop is here, and his Tumblr is here.

The Hawkeye Initiative

About 12 years ago for a class project in art school I argued that sexism was not inherently embedded in the female nude in art (or images of women, period, as argued by the hardcore feminists there), but coded in the poses. Wish I’d thought of the following to make my point: The Hawkeye Initiative exposes what we’re so used to seeing that we don’t notice any more. It shows the ludicrous and the sexploitative in comics by replacing heroines with the buff Hawkeye character in the same pose—-drawn by whoever wants to participate, with some pretty hilarious results.
