    She was a little horny.

    I don’t get this one. It’s just a girl by herself… where’s the pet.

    I don’t think she can see it, it’s just taking advantage of a convenient resting place.

    The artist has been on the “far out” tabs again.

    Don’t blame the artist. Blame the idiot who “cleaned and improved it” in the 19th century. X-rays show she originally had a dog on her lap. Then someone cleaned it very badly and added the unicorn for no particularly good reason.

    Can’t Melcher practice in his own room?

    That explains the poor critter’s horrified expression.

    It looks like a miniature goat that just relieved itself in her hand.

    Click-to-enlarge image (with no MELCHER practice_panel_selects_6-26.doc) can be found here, or at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry — also doesn’t show whatever that is below, to the right of Oil on panel in the strip image.

    Young Woman with a Unicorn (link shows painting’s Wikipedia page) isn’t, as far as I can tell, currently shown online by its current location (somewhat odd, since it seems to be quite well known).

    A different coloration, click-to-enlarge image can be found here, along with a description. More information about it can be found here (also the first minute of the embedded 5 minute video; thanks @Lerf1950 for tipping me off about the dog!).

    It is also analyzed here. Many different coloration or detail images of it can be found online. The artist’s Catholic Encyclopedia bio, Wikipedia page, and collection (many more under Subcategories at each level).

    So far, 3 works (under 3 different names, usually known as simply Raphael), by this artist, have appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog.

    If Mr. Melcher is reading this:

    Snapping a picture of what’s on the screen doesn’t require a camera, and such “flaws”, or the cursor arrow, that has shown up on earlier editions of this strip, won’t be present in the snapped picture.

    On a Mac, ⌘+3 will snap a picture of the whole screen, ⌘+4 followed by clicking and dragging your mouse to highlight the region, will snap a picture of the region. If similar keyboard shortcuts aren’t available on a Windows PC, I know the software exists (I use it on my XP laptop, Google Snagit) to do the same there.

    In its early days, Shari Lewis’s “Lamb Chop” routine went through a LOT of strange and experimental iterations.
