I came across this comic by Bruce Tinsley that makes humor of the current state of hyperconsciousness which is alienated from cultural traditions. Much of the ugliness in current culture is due to this impoverished state of mind. In the 19th century no one would think twice about an image of Cupid. The comic is rather in insightful in showing how the media can manipulate perception and how that perception can effect individuals’ lives. Cupid should not be forced to find a new line of work and neither should artists.
