The act of noticing or observing the egg:


“Disgusting. And yet somehow I will feel more cheery about the process now.

If the goal of art is to present new perspectives, and if the truest monument to art is how long its imagery lives on in the audience’s mind, this particular comic strip might be your master work. Because I will remember it once a month at least until my 50s. 😛

Your line art and coloring are charming as always and your topics are twisted as usual. Good job.” Alexandra Queen, The Piker Press

miss egg says: help fighting the fishing crisis

I just emailed my trade minister about the fishing crisis. I hope you will, too. In a few weeks, the World Trade Organization will come forward with new rules to govern global fishing –and if enough of us raise our voice, we can help end the unfair and unsustainable fishing system, in which rich countries subsidize corporate fleets to overfish the oceans. It’s unfair to fishers in poor countries. And if it keeps going, global fish populations will collapse. (Already, 90% of big fish like tuna and marlin have disappeared.)

Click on the titel above to sending a message to the trade minister–and help defend our oceans and our future.

Thanks!
