only “slightly” better? oh boy….
Hey, they didn’t say it would actually be better, they said it was possible it would be slightly better. Theoretically, it could possibly be slightly worse. Although, it’s hard to imagine it could be worse than it already is.
Draw Something as art.
….nope. I can’t bring myself to hate it. It’s too damn cheerful.
me too. it’s got a certain je ne sais quois
guess she was going through her “unibrow on barnwood” period….
Hoo boy! Dondi! That little kid used to give me the creeps. It’s the eyes.
Not to mention the whole orphan thing which totally plays on all your adopted-child fears when you’re in the single digits!1
How do you think I felt as a kid—I looked like my siblings AND like the worst relatives on the wrong side of the family—no way would anyone believe that I was adopted, no matter how often I said it was true. Hoped it was true. Damn parents having sex!
My two older sisters used to fight over which one of them was adopted. I never understood why till I got older, and my oldest sister told me they thought it would make them ‘special.’
Though to be fair, my next oldest sister stood a better chance. Unlike all the rest of us kids, who were born bald and our hair came in white-blond, she was born with a head full of black curls.
Looks like Dora the Explorer to me.
It looks like Olive Oyl with a unibrow to me.
I only wish I could paint such crap.
Oh, you could. Most likely before you reached puberty.
Because everyone who knew Frida never saw her without a big smile on her face.
Where in the world is Diego Rivera?
If this was a line of portraits of fine artists as painted by small children it would be etsy gold!
Ohhhhh (that’s a loud squeal of DELIGHT!) one of my favorite moments in Regretsy revisited!!! Good times!
I actually loved the cheerful little drawing (though, no, it doesn’t look like Frida, but that was kinda the point). (and it initiated my making and selling some Frida finger puppets).
The exchange with the “artist” was priceless and thus began the phrase “Show me you’re art”.
::breathless:: maybe she’ll return and hate us some more!
I even madez a unibrow….
Flip it over and it converts into a Villainous Mustache!
That would be creamily lovely.
I remember this one as well. I liked it. I thought it was cute. Like some sort of character for a museum to introduce children to art. Then the artist got all hurt, and pulled it down.
I still think it is cute.
It’s gone up to $45 now! Does anyone have a 3 year old cause they could just put them to work on etsy.
I need to raise my prices.
Definitely look like Olive Oyl, Popeye’s girlfriend.
I actually think this is adorable, despite the period of rage that the seller went through.
I keep thinking I’ll have $45 to buy it but somehow other things keep getting in the way.
I can’t imagine what I said that pushed my comment into the spam filter…
The artist’s profile now says she has a painting on the set of “2 Broke Girls.” I have to watch the show now to find it.
I’m just really glad somebody finally captured Frida’s bright and happy side. Everybody knows how cheerful she was (it’s captured in all of her art and poetry). Kudos!
I hope she does Poe next.
Frida Kahlo, as imagined by a third-rate disciple of Charles Schulz.
Olive Oyl was never the same after she went to the Wombyn’s Retreat.
Damn you, I just thought of an Olive Oyl joke. Kudos for beating me to the punch.
Well no one’s made a Little Lulu joke yet! Quickly!
That’s a picture of Bert’s great aunt Francesca!
You really see the resemblance.
I keep coming back to this post just so I can giggle all over again. You’re the best!
This is an example of Lowbrow unibrow.

I’m way more offended by the cultural appropriation than I am by the shitty, shitty art.
I wonder how Clare Booth Luce would feel about this.
Güey no mames. Ten sentido del humor.
I made this in honor of this post:
I can’t believe it’s been that long.
LONG LIVE FRIDA KHALOPUSS!!!
