Cubism is Alive and Well and Wants a Juice Box

“Look, it’s a train,” Athena explains, and damned if it isn’t. The question is whether it’s a train because she intended it to be a train, of if it’s a train because she was just doodling and that’s the closest actual object to what she’s doodled. I’d ask her, but that seems like an imposition on the creative process, if you ask me.

    I saw that as the smoke coming out. But a shovel is good, too.

    Hee. That’s the funniest thing I’ve read all day. Okay, it’s only 10.45 in the morning, but still….

    Personally, I think it’s a Transformer midway between its train and Tyrannosaurus Rex forms.

    I thought Athena did a marvelous job of capturing the sonic impact of the steam whistle as the train approached the station!
