Always one to darken the door of an art exhibition, and having curated two myself, this diagram, spotted on Twitter this morning, made me laugh. Delightful.
John Atkinson, drawer of this cartoon, has his work exhibited in Time Magazine. There’s a reason: it’s clever, perceptive and give you a smile or roar with laughter. (Which, after all, is what we want from a cartoon).
You can follow John’s work at his website Wrong Hands.

The Problem (unstated)
Why is the cartoon strip called Wrong Hands?
I call it Wrong Hands for two reasons. One, it’s a play on the idiom when something “falls into the wrong hands” — you never know how it might be perceived or interpreted. And two, I’m left-handed and I draw all of the cartoons directly on the computer using my right hand.
