@Reginal T. Squirge I come bearing a song about sweaters that is more linear!!
Really, I look for an excuse to promote Meryn Cadell.
I enjoy the art style of this. Not sure what's happening in the story though!
Surprise boob growths from your cute new sweater. #justgirlythings
They're the little ink-splatter shoplifting preventer things! Right?
@melis those aren't THAT big!
"Sidney Masuga was disappointed when she discovered her sweater of choice would not cover up her back-boobs."
a design that made you cry because patriarchy.
What is this David Lynch-ian mindfuckery???
I mean I enjoy it immensely but???
Bahahaha! What? This was great. Mainly because the look of "Oh NO, not again", in the final panel.
Edited to add I often have a similar experience in shops, but mainly related to shoulder pads. *shudder*
@tea sonata I don't have back boobs but that's how I feel every time I try on anything ever.
This is kind of like trying on cardigans in Anthropologie, where you get all excited about some super twee cardigan only to turn around and realize they've tried to make it "special" by sewing a 2-foot sheer chiffon ruffle over your ass.
Were... you in Spencer's? Possibly Hot Topic?
Maybe it's on of those sweaters that have buttons down the back and she put it on thinking it was a cardigan and the boobs are hyper literal ways of showing that there were boob holsters back there?
@tigrrrlily WAIT WHERE DO YOU LIVE THAT SWEATERS HAVE BOOB HOLSTERS?
WHERE WERE YOU SHOPPING IN VANCOUVER??
@lora.bee It was totally Urban Outfitters I bet.
@lora.bee eh, it looks like forever 21 to me.
@lora.bee My money's on One of a few.
This makes me think of Marion Cotillard in "Forehead Tittaes." But sadder.
she walks in, then in the dressing room she spys the cardigan discarded by another customer.....BAM back tittys!!
This makes about as much sense as Relationshapes!
@Bus Driver Stu Benedict I don't get Relationshapes either! (I'm spending the evening pondering the things I just don't get, although I really want to.)
@Bus Driver Stu Benedict But, it was clear that Relationshapes weren't supposed to make much sense. I suppose this makes more sense if I treat it like it's Relationshapes.
My understanding of Relationshapes:
* one-half social commentary on a society that wants to gender everything and then assign strict gender roles. As in, "men are like this and women are like that and relationshapes between men and women always have these kinds of problems" taken to a hyper-extreme by casting abstract shapes in these roles.
* one-half just bizarre, silly randomness
Of course, everyone has their own understanding of relationshapes, which I think is also kinda the point.
@ThatWench I'm glad you said that because I have never come upon my own understanding of it and I just gave up.
Where are her legs half the time?
Guys, relax, this must be A Canadian Thing.
@Decca (I absolutely love the artwork btw)
@Decca We need some Cansplaining.
I love this. It is weird and wonderful, and the facial expressions are perfect. MORE!
Hilarious and surreal. Also, kind of real: how often have i bought something that looked great in the store, then discovered it made me look deformed or realized there was something weird about the fit once I got it home? Love it! Brilliant!
@carolita Ugh, so often. (Only usually I don't notice it right away, but after a few wears.)
@SarahP Or a few years.
"I must, I must, I must increase my bust. I better, I better, before I wear a sweater. ...God damn it."
@MoxyCrimeFighter The version I learned was "The bigger, the better, the tighter the sweater. The boys depend on us!"
Annnnnnd then my boobs got huge with no weird forearm exercise involved.
Awesome artwork! I cracked up so hard after I scrolled down a little. More, please!!
ahahahahha back tittys
keeps gettin funnier
I fucking love this. And not just because I'm in and from Vancouver.
I love this. Like... a lot.
When I first saw the retro look of the first frame, I thought maybe it was an excerpt from Calling All Girls.
Related: Can we please have another excerpt from Calling All Girls???
I don't get it, but I still kind of thought it was funny. Just like Relationshapes.
I think she is also reacting to this painting by Magritte.
(Sorry, linked to a random blog where it's posted; don't have time for a better link).
This was great! Hope to see more!
@harebell I do not care for those shoes one little bit.
More! Please! More!
Highlight of the hairpin today, if I daresay!
I don't know...that sweater would make her very popular in conga lines.
Boobs always get in the way of wearing cute sweaters.
Anyone else see that short (possibly National Film Board of Canada) about the kid who gets a Leafs instead of a Canadiens jersey? eh? eh?
