You people don't look at enough art.<P>I thought something like Bosch's
<a href="http://www.ibiblio.org/wm/paint/auth/bosch/delight/delightr.jpg">Garden of Earthly Delights</a> or perhaps something by <a href="http://www.ibiblio.org/wm/paint/auth/goya/goya.saturn-son.jpg">Goya</a> would've suited your readership a little better, Lee.<P>Dana,
I'm an Art Historian. Don't tempt me.

Um, I'm sorry Corax but, <b>what are you talking about</b>? I'm not trying to say that Goya or Bosch would've worked better for that comic. I think it's a pretty <b>obvious</b> joke, actually. Rather, I was saying that I expected something a little more SHOCK and a little less ROCK may have suited the tastes of Lee's audience.<P>In the meantime, don't try to suck up to Lee just because you know that he HATEs me. I'm so <b>over</b> that. That was so <b>yesterday</b>.<P>Dana.

*carefully avoiding any comment on suitability of art in comic*
i would think the bosch has possibilities - i'm pretty sure that's a spleen up near the top.<P>------------------

Spleens are so handy. Everyone should have one around the house for various purposes.<P>You know, if you ever decided to make t-shirts, for some reason, you could put a spleen on it.

I think dogs playing poker actually works pretty well. Everything about the painting would be perfectly normal except for one altered detail: dogs instead of people. Butch would be your average Joe but for the fact that he kills people as a hobby. And that one detail makes all the difference. In the background, you see dogs inserted into a game of poker. In the foreground, you see what happens when you insert Butch into a game of poker. It made sense to me, at least. I'm not sure if that's supposed to be his house or what, but I think Butch is the type who'd hang that on his wall. <p>[This message has been edited by Corax (edited 03-12-2002).]

this one looks more like a bagpipe - that's how i recognized it. (brush info does explain some of the color scheme, though)
