Here are the Rumpus illustrations from the past 2.5 months...
More to come over the next few weeks, but for NOW the big news is that I have a show coming up! One just passed, which was part of the reason for my absence on this platform, but the other will be in 3 weeks...which will account for my likely absence on this blog after the zeal of tonight.
More info on the show soon though!
Until then...enjoy- Funny Women illustrations:

How's That Barnard Thing Working out for You
I HATED this one...which was possibly the author's intent- to annoy people like me. It may have been satire. I couldn't tell if that was her intent. It's interesting how some things are harder to convey over a written format. And if it was intended to be satire, is it ineffective if I didn't get it? What was her angle? I'm very curious. I'll probably email her when I get some down time to discuss the piece with her because I want to know. It definitely got me thinking though about how an author's intent plays into the interpretation of art. As I was reading it, I trying to figure out her angle in order to interpret that piece "correctly." But shouldn't it not matter? I don't know.
