I’d like to see R Crumb take up with Ms Sansour–where’s he hiding these days?

These are powerful illustrations, Ethan…on par with Joe Sacco’s “Palestine” or Art Spiegelman’s “Maus.”

a mutually extended olive branch is about as sexy as it gets

!!!! love the graphic on that one. ok, working my way down, i just had to say that.

i highly recommend people open the link: “Swiss museum cancels competition after prize-sponsor Lacoste rejects Palestinian artist”: http://mondoweiss.net/2011/12/french-museum-cancels-prize-rather-than-accept-lacostes-banning-of-palestinian-artist.html

this is startling art. Larissa Sansour is a mindblowing artist. you have to see it to believe it. …ok, back to the comic! love this!

okay i had to come back once i finished. thank you thank you thank you ethan! just excellent. i’m falling in love with this medium.

and i learned about another artist today, oreet ashery.
