Taken by Winter just now. Cheetah (or “Lily,” our new preferred name) peering over the couch.
i.e., outward appearance or descriptions (“signifiers”) shouldn’t obligate one to adopt any specific way of living. Contrasted with, say, the expectations/obligations that used to flow from a signifier as trivial as pink/blue baby clothes…? 🤷‍♂️
Okay, just thinking out loud here, but as I learn about people’s evolving approaches to pronouns and gender, it seems like a common theme is: Signifiers ≠ Obligations Does that make any sense?
So which car symbol is your LEAST favorite? (feel free to pick one not included below). Reply with just the image, please. No name needed.
1. Here's what Stacey Abrams was saying about Georgia. 2. And here's what Fox News reported for clickbait.

This has some good observations, and includes a cool interview with @HassanOE. Check it out. Also had to laugh at the *oh-god-not-again* status my first book has apparently reached in such conversations after 29 years on the shelves... :-)…
In case you’re not already following Snyder, here’s a good thread.…
Check out the fun bubble/balloon in today’s Bizarro. We’re talking about these types of “carriers” of text this week in my Visual Language class, so I might make my students diagram this one

My daughter Veronica told me she wanted to make comics but was afraid to because she couldn’t draw as well as I can. I made this for her and she spent the morning making comics and I felt like a good dad! @PaulaNiedenthal @wcraghead @danrobertsvoice @Manruss

If you are thinking about using the phrase “racially-charged” in a headline or news report today — stop. Hit delete. Start over and make it plain. The shooter in Buffalo called himself a racist in his manifesto so you can too.

A simple pleasure during this dark time. Thank you to Francisco for making it, and for bringing it to my attention.…
If you get this connection, we can be best friends 😁B

I had to rush Ivy to a hospital in Rhode Island for this very reason in 1990. If such obscene abortion laws had been in effect where we lived, Ivy would have died 2 years into our marriage instead of 34. And our two children would have never existed. "pro-life" 🪦🪦…tFL
Gotta love “hazardous trees” and the particularly jaunty “uneven surfaces.” h/t @RosemaryMosco

Wonderful design choices all round.
Amidst all the gifts of food in wake of last week’s tragedy, comes this unrelated but equally heartfelt gift from the great @kevin2kelly: this gargantuan 3 book box set of his sublimely beautiful photographs of an Asia the world is quietly losing.
I don't mind having enemies, I just wish they were higher quality

My news exposure has been spotty since our own loss last Thursday, but in a visit to @KurtBusiek yesterday, I learned of the passing of yet another comics great. RIP the beloved George Pérez. Good God, what a week...…
Opposing Robert Bork for SCOTUS 1987, Ted Kennedy warned against an America where "women would be forced into back-alley abortions, Blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors...schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution."

Oh god, and another. Justin was a treasure and my heart goes out to the brilliant artist Carol Tyler, his wife of many years.…
Deeply sorry to hear this. One of my first favorite comics artists, as a 14-year-old fan in the '70s. RIP.…
Ivy died in a car crash on Thursday, April 28. She was 61. We were married 34 years. The kids and I, plus Ivy's family (and many dear friends) are slowly picking up the pieces. It may take awhile. Comments off. You don't have to say anything.❤️
Ivy Ratafia McLeod 1960–2022 You loved us and told us so. We loved you and told you so. Every day. We love you. We miss you. We wish it wasn't so.
So many cartoonists are blandly anti-stylish (us dudes especially), but let's give thanks for the incandescent few like Ms. McIntyre who brighten everyone's day. 🌞…6
Ivan Krastev on Ezra Klein’s show pointing out that Trump’s idea of loyalty is more effective (like Putin’s); anyone can be loyal to a person when they’re in the right… these types demand loyalty when they’re in the clearly in the Wrong.
I don’t know how this part of the story will shake out, but this seems like an important framing of where we are now.👇…w
