One way to answer the "What's Up?" question.


But not necessarily recommended. Still, seasonal.

And after Frieze, there is Basel Miami. Or there isn't.


Danny learns an important lesson about getting clever with grammatical logic, and Nathan learns to keep his receipts.

The Return

It has been a long time since the last strip. Sorry about that.

Further adventures in art and money

If he's really lucky, he'll see the bears in Louise Lawler photos. That's how you know you've really made it.

Of course, there's always the possibility that he is enthused about the ongoing economic viability of his representation.

er poet than Carl Andre (fig. 1, Andre, fig. 2, Reinhardt)
















A bett
er cartoonist than Willem deKooning (and Marcel Duchamp, for that matter, but I couldn't find any Duchamp cartoon images):

Pay-What-You-Want

Extra points if you can identify the hastily caricatured deceased art luminary in the crowd (Hint: He's the greatest American artist of the twentieth century). Respond in comments for prizes or congratulations, I'm not sure which.

Conspiracy Theory


One should be able to read periodicals on public transportation without elbowing one's neighbors in the face.

Re-Gifting, maybe?





Of course, this is about this:




















Otherwise it could be a little confusing.
