Below is the latest The Pain -- When Will It End?
I would prefer not to have to explain
or defend this cartoon to anyone, ever, for any reason at all. It came into
my head around three in the morning one hot night while I was lying half-awake
in bed, filled with anxieties. It's not consciously intended as a comment
on race or anything else in the real world, although it sort of looks like
one. It's just this thing. All I can say about it with any certainty is that
I wanted both their expressions to be creepily blank and dull-eyed, sort of
like the giant in Goya's "Saturn Devouring His Children."
Sorry, everyone. I'm terribly sorry.
Some weeks this is what happens.
