Cartoons perpetuate stereotypes

(the bubbling fish and the sprinkling whale)

spirit of art print

"We all know that stereotypes are bad, false images that prevent us from truly seeing other people. We also know that stereotypes are, at a minimum, a necessary evil, that we could not make sense of or recognize objects or other people without the capacity to form images that allow us to distinguish one thing from another, one person from another, one class of thing from another."

W.J.T. Mitchell

What is an etching?

We have to play our role in life ("brain organizes visual information into groups") ignoring the problems of sad and lonely pictures.

Slow art cannot be separated from true life.
