@Spooky-43: Thanks for knowing I am a woman.
Now for some info about the arts and money:
The overwhelming majority of artists support ourselves from ways other than selling art (like high 90something percent). Women rarely get shows in museums. Women are underrepresented in galleries in relation to our numbers. You need to know more artists.

having just watched movie “Collapse” and reading “Confronting Collapse” Michael Ruppert’s, I saw an oildrop and thought whoa you got that right

Might be a little easier to take if it did’t have those two little adds right underneath it:
“buy a signed print”
“get this on a t-shirt or mug”
Cap that with NYCartists discussion of her artsy endeavors, as though tragedies are nothing more than an excuse for a museum exhibit and making a buck.
I have to agree with Zeya. Save your little artwork tributes until they have at least had a chance to count the victims. Poor taste.

It’s not in poor taste. Look at the title. I think Fish
is trying to say this tragedy is a foreshadow for the
rest of the year. Lets hope its not though.

Nice, Mr. Fish. Hokusai’s Wave woodcut was my favorite piece of art for many years after having seen it in the Brooklyn Museum as a child (where I’d been sent for a class by my public school). Decades later, I saw it on a book cover at the Met Museum of Art.
@gerard, I wish your friends luck. My brother’s wife is Japanese born and I have relatives by marriage there. If we could convince governments to put all the war resources into humanitarian work for natural disasters instead, and use much of the military budgets for social services….

A beautiful tribute! Thank you. I have several friends in that area who may be suffering. I can’t reach them but will keep trying.

I find this cartoon to be in extremely poor taste since it seems to trivialize the
horror of the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan today. Thousands of
people have lost their lives in this catastrophic event, so I would have hoped that
Truthdig would have shown little more sensitivity toward this terrible tragedy.
