Cartoons are the lowest art form

restless eyebrows, funny eyebrows, crazy eyebrows
Cartoonists have restless eyebrows, a neurosis from inner comedy.
    
 Cartoons are the artworld's 
embarrassing cousin!
       
All men and women cartoonists
have one thing in common . . .

"Theirs is the lowest of the arts"
   
Marginally higher on the respect-heap 
are fine art painters . . .

The very finest artists only work when the mood strikes, unlike
those lowly commercial artists with their trashy 'deadlines' . . .

The truth is, painters starve as much as cartoonists do,
 craving the same elusive dignity and respect . . .
