Above, a frame of animation drawn by John Kricfalusi, from a post at Uncle Eddie’s Theory Corner succinctly titled John Kricfalusi: Genius! And the short piece of animation that Eddie shares there is indeed extraordinary.
More links from that time in the tweets below the fold, on Libya, Mali, Syria, Bahrain, Afghanistan, and a few more art links too.

@punkyscudmonkey Would've thought that meant turning down new deals, not no to money from old deals - not that I care that much about it!
@punkyscudmonkey Wouldn't that differ from deal to deal? Lucas set example on Star Wars. Y'think JK Rowling gets naught from W. Bros merch?
@punkyscudmonkey Alan Moore says he's happy about the use, though. Are you sure he doesn't get a cut? nytimes.com/2011/08/29/tec…

Just saw Taliban rocket execution video. People talk about a "political settlement", little grasp of who with and how grisly it would be.

@MaxDunbar1 But I'm an artist, and not to be trusted!
Art often driven by egocentric desire to make fantasies real, so don't trust artists and writers in politics! @MaxDunbar1 @ILoveArt2687

@ThinkStrat @shashj ..What unity there is amongst rebels is based on patriotism and desire for self-determination. Imposing peacekeepers...
@ThinkStrat @shashj Patriotism, self-determination unify revolutionaries. Imposing peacekeepers would go against main strengths of situation
@ThinkStrat @Nusbacher ..problem is you don't like the aim: "our own future.. nothing to do w. const. make-up of Libya" toryreformgroup.tumblr.com/post/936805501…
@ThinkStrat @Nusbacher Why's that preferable? Intervention gave us influence with winners, good if aim to shape political outcome...
@ThinkStrat @Nusbacher Very surprised to see you invoke Afghanistan as warning, but then advocate foreign troops.
@ThinkStrat @Nusbacher Where we WANT to go is usual want list. Success not certain but is it ever? Where was preferable certain alternative?
