The cartoon shows an artist painting the walls of his studio so that the window looks like a painting on a canvas.
Part of the joke is that as a result, the only ‘real’ thing in the cartoon is the one thing that is meant to look like a painting.
A cartoon about trompe-l’œil and optical illusions, referencing works such as Rene Magritte’s The Human Condition (La condition humaine).
Cartoon drawn: 2019
