I doodled this ages ago after reading some Garfield and finding it lousy. Yesterday I posted it on a messageboard, and it went down fairly well. I even received a fairly sturdy review from someone called DanAdamKOF:
"John is expressing dissatisfaction with his life, in a way that expresses his dissatisfaction in its most basic way: with tears. Meanwhile, Garfield looks funny as hell with no limbs and a brutish, oversimplified face. Though oversimplified, he still has the usual uncaring expression. Add in the requisite table, and the often-shown plate of food... it's Garfield, broken down to its purest and most simple form.
I'm no art major or anything, but I can't help but dwell on this picture. To me, it is art."
Haha, make of that what you will. The original artwork is on four little squares of paper from a pile I use for making notes. If I could find them, I'd sell them for a million pounds! Thank you, DanAdamKOF. I had no idea I was so clever.
