The New Yorker cartoons are supposed to critique modern day upper class life and have been doing so since the magazines publication in 1925. The New Yorker Cartoonist, Liana Finck, goes one step further and dissects the inner workings of the minds of modern day humans. In other words, it is like she can read my mind. Below I will analyse and comment on the cartoons that most resonated with me.
When I say Microsoft, what image appears in your mind’s eye? Do you think of Traf-O-Data? Certainly not! Yet that was the name contained in their first logo which appeared in the 1970s. No wonder the logo had such a tiny font size. Some say founders Bill Gates and Paul Allen designed it themselves and that the Disco Age inspired them.
I am certain of a few things. One, that Frida Kahlo, Mexico’s acclaimed artist, was born to suffer great emotional and physical anguish in order to find release, strength, and hope through painting, and painting what she knew best, herself. Some 66 years later she has inspired a vast and diverse population of women who like her, are seeking healing and identity through their creativity.
They always spoke to him at night. Some spoke in whispers, others in shouts. Some laughed, or cried, joked or threatened, but the end result was always the same. They would bleed into his dreams, and in turn his dreams would bleed onto the canvas, and the whole process would start anew the next day. His paintings sold, though not quickly enough for him to make a living from it. And they certainly did not sell quickly enough to give him any peace.
After one particularly loud night the painter took his four noisiest pieces (he recognized them by the color of their voices) into the marketplace and walked from stand to stand offering his wares to anyone who would take them. He didn’t ask money for a single one, and before long he had discarded each one at a different stand.
The next few weeks went by uneventfully for the painter. He would rise in the morning, dress, work, eat a meager meal, and when he could afford the materials he would paint. But no matter what one routine always remained the same: every night before bed the painter would carefully and quietly lock the door to the room that held his paintings. They were always quieter through a locked door.
Hey Marcella, I recognize your work! It’s just like Picasso! I must have heard that too many times and still wince inwardly every time I hear it.

COMMUNITY. What does that word mean to You, individually? Ask yourself...
For business owners and website owners alike, the struggle to find high-quality images that can be used for promotional and advertisement purposes is one that has been going on for a long time. This is primarily due to the fact that all creative works both published and unpublished are protected by US copyright law in one way or another. The determining factor in how a third-party entity besides the copyright owner can use such media falls into the sole hands of the person who owns the copyright.
As a new still-life model, I still can't understand how some people keep an inventory of their poses. Maybe they're just super good at memorizing movements, wing it as they go, or have a general sitting pose that they alternate slightly each time they do it.
