The Dadaist movement was a deliberate conscious effort to turn the tables upside down, to show the absolute insanity of our present day life, the worthlessness of our values. There were wonderful men in the Dadaist movement, and they all had a sense of humor. It was something to make you laugh, but also to make you think.

- Henry Miller

Welcome to Europiummm Comics, where high art meets low humor. If you love art, you've come to the right place. If you have issues with authority, you've come to the right place.

Times change, but I don't think people do. We owe a lot to the artists of the past, like the Impressionists, who also challenged the formal norms of their time. Thanks to them, we are afforded an intimate glimpse of what life was like 100 years ago. Degas took us backstage of the ballet. Renoir and Manet were among the first to truly explore the beauty of the female nude, thanks to the prostitutes and performers who frequently posed for them. With the fervor of young Icarus, Monet pursued light. He bought a studio boat with a tall cabin so he could paint while on the river whatever the weather.

I love their paintings, because they are scenes. Each is a small, colorful play in a frame. What were they thinking, the ones who sat there for hours posing for these artists? What were the artists thinking when they broke from artistic tradition and decided to paint us, the world around them, life as they knew it? The best comedians get the biggest laughs by holding a mirror up to their audience, to the world. I believe the Impressionists were trying to do the same thing: show us ourselves.

And who are we? That's what I have tried to explore with these collage comics, taking the liberty to fill in a few "blanks" here and there.
