Ouch! Perhaps they do.
Seems that Zubin the Zebra knows how to deal effectively with the Polizist (our Inner Cop, the stifler of creative thoughts)!

Enough nonsense! There are no Zebras in Switzerland!
We have a Cartoonists License.

To deal with "Der Polizist" (the Inner Cop) who stands between us and our Art, this book is helpful. The Licensing Exam is on page 56. The test is less simple than it says, especially because the Polizist will dismiss it as "too simple" in the attempt of preventing us from actually taking it.

A Shaykh... a Shark... what is the difference, anyway? HA HA HA! HA HA HA!! HA HA HA!!! HA HA HA!!!!

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

629c

But... you are a Shaykh! Will you go back to your darvishes as a shark?!?
For sure I will...

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Yes, Dear Nûr!!! This is the effect of a glance of a Master: my Real Self awoke! A Shark am I and forever will be!! SHARKS AHOY!!!!

Yo Ho Ho... and a Bottle of Ink!

Salam Dear Cartoon-and-Frog Lovers! The coming strip (# 629, starting tomorrow) contains a novelty: it is inked with nibs and bottled inks. A sort of "Back to the Tradition" which Marina greatly enjoyed... because the ink is BLACK and the lines are SHARP.

*And this is Love - the vertigo of heaven
Beyond the cage of words,
Suddenly to be naked in the searchlight
of truth..."


The above lines are from a poem of Rumi translated by Raficq Abdulla. See page 20 of this book: *Words of Paradise* - Viking Studio.

I mean love strips us naked, and in the searchlight of truth we are...

For the sword hidden among Love's pinions, see "Love" in Gibran Kahlil Gibran's *The Prophet*.

We were talking love. And love is about cutting and being cut.
You mean that those who fear, fear the pain of the blade?

It appears that Mr Darfish is quite fluent in the Tangramese language!

Apologies if I did upset you, Sir... but I was speaking heart, not mind...

Right, Frog, Right! I am here because this Darfish misquoted me. What I said is: "A mind that is all logic is like a knife that is all blade!".

Odd Knife

Froggies waiting for your colours!

Thursday, May 29, 2014

626d

Perhaps we do lose something by falling in love: the illusion we can cut with a knife that is all handle!

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

626c

Tsk tsk. When ever did the mind control the heart? We lose nothing when we fall in love...

Tuesday, May 27, 2014
