Cowtown: Snooty Artist
By Charlie Podrebarac
Cowtown hits the art scene, poking fun at the culture of galleries, museums, and of course, cows and pigs. Snooty Artist focuses its poignant jokes on beret-wearing “artists” and incompetent circus clowns with the popular comic strip’s signature wordplay and twisted life musings. Sprinkle a pig here and a cow there, and you have a sharply funny collection that sets its sights on something we all love to playfully ridicule: art and artists.
