At least they’re spending their Sunday afternoon out and about. :-|Of course the pointillism of this cartoon is to spoof our new world of on-line interactiveness. The Global l’Île de la Grande Jatte. We’re all connected and more alone than ever. And probably indoors.Say, Omq, where are you right now? I say, I don’t have an anti-glare screen capable of being read outdoors. There should be more advances in screen technology so we can take more of our devices with us! [Once in a museum I actually overheard someone pronounce (very loudly) Georges surname as “sewer rat”. I don’t speak French, just how is it pronounced?]
What’s spooky is the accuracy. Kids especially are hooked on the screens, and miss the real world. Watched a young girl in New Zealand oblivious to the beauty around her as she played a game. Resource agencies are all scrambling to find ways to keep folks interested in the outdoors, with on line programs.
is that a monkey near her bustle? is that her minkey? does she have a lysance for that minkey?
more fresh air to our devices – but no smoking
Nice artwork, Mr. Stahler. Of course the action reflects the activity of this day.
Good weather in a cartoon based on a painting that’s more than 100 years old is evidence in the debate over global climate change??!!
if you want young people to start paying attention to and enjoying nature, legalize psychedelic mushrooms
This scene is really depressing. :-/
Ima: we keep re-reading “Mein Kampf” to see where the current Republican strategists are getting their ideas.
Bravo, Monsieur Stahler! How often do you see an editorial cartoon that uses a reference from art history for a comment on our society’s obsession with isolation withn technology?
