Artist's Statement

I would prefer not to have to explain or defend this cartoon to anyone, ever, for any reason at all. It came into my head around three in the morning one hot night while I was lying half-awake in bed, filled with anxieties. It's not consciously intended as a comment on race or anything else in the real world, although it sort of looks like one. It's just this thing. All I can say about it with any certainty is that I wanted both their expressions to be creepily blank and dull-eyed, sort of like the giant in Goya's "Saturn Devouring His Children."

Sorry, everyone. I'm terribly sorry. Some weeks this is what happens.
