Your Unnecessary Spot Illustration of the Day


This was for something, I'm not sure what. Either a Gene Weingarten column, a Joel Achenbach column or an E.J. Dionne column, no doubt about dot coms. Whatever, I like it. Mostly because the artist looks so intense, like one of those New York abstract expressionists or post-expressionists of the 50s who in photos always seemed to have the entire existential weight of the world on their shoulders.

Great stuff. Only one question: how does he see the computer in order to paint it? It just seems to be in a strange position... Don't know where else you'd put it, though.

Wait. Why is that guy painting Mickey Mouse's nose with a snickers bar?

Am I missing something?

PS: my word verification for this comment was "inglere"? Is that dirty? Now, I'm definitely missing something.
