I'm a digital artist and visual developer, or vice versa, living in Belgium (Europe that is). Yet, I do like my analog pencil, not because I can draw (which I can't), but it allows me to think more freely. I wanted to draw comics when I was young, but then I became an engineer and ended up doing 3D animation and post-production. So I tend to do anything "visual" I like... like now, drawing cartoons again as I did 30 years ago.

In November 2019, I found my niche in statistics and them being (mostly) (ab)used in science, media, politics... And though I intended to steer clear from current affairs, a few months after I started the series, the earth was struck with Corona, media was flooded with statistics, and I couldn't help but touch upon the topic, gently. I do prefer the absurd and witty, however.

Not always succeeding, but plenty of ideas to keep trying. The top spot and a true master in that field? Tom Gauld, whose work I truly admire (and he can draw).

So here is my absurd cartoon series with the occasional glimpse of reality. I hope you enjoy it. And if you do, find out more on my Instagram.

I have a similar problem with a person I have known for a long time. Her IQ tested as "exceptional," so she smugly assumes that she is right about everything without doing the necessary research to come up with a well-reasoned opinion. While it might make her good presidential material, it is frustrating at times.

Wasn't something like this a theme in "1984m"

You're close, you mean: 'All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.' It's from George Orwell's Animal Farm and it summarizes perfectly how the world works. Sadly but true. A must-read, just like his 1984. Cannot stress this enough: People, read these books! They're frightening but oh so true. Orwell was a genius.

If we are all "Equal", why do we have "job interviews"? Shouldn't the jobs just go to first in best dressed?

Exactly. Equality is nonexistent politically correct fabricated fantasy. The proof is that it only applies to humans. "All humans are equal. We all have the same qualities, skills and traits. Saying Negros (generally) are good at singing and dancing or the Scottish and Germans are good at engineering is RACIST!!!. Saying men are stronger than women is SEXIST!! etc.But apparently it's totally OK to say German Shepards are good at being Police/Guard dogs and Kelpies are excellent sheep herders. Or crows are very good at using objects as tools to help them get food and pigeons are useless retards that shit everywhere. Yes! That's right! Every single living plant and animal species and their various breeds (races) on the planet all have different levels of skills, qualities, abilities. Some are absolutely useless and have no remarkable abilities at all like pigeons, or some are very talented at one skill like sheep herding Kelpies. But not humans. We're all "equal".

We're also the only species that survive death (apparently) and get to live in a fantasy afterlife world (Lucky us!). Intelligent, emotional, and self-aware beings like whales, dolphins, elephants, and our fellow members of the "Four Great Apes" Chimps, Gorillas, and Orangutans (Yes Humans are the fourth one) get short-changed. Humans. Their best overall ability as an entire species is making up HEAPS of bullshit to make it's individual members "feel better".

Lol, reminded me of my first semester of college, the Methods in Biology professor almost pulling her hairs off when explaining that you.do.not.connect.the.dots (everyone was doing right, she was probably frustrated with ppl in general, not with the class)

I saw this kind of fudging of data in the wild once (with a pie chart) and fell for it. Luckily the result so weird someone had me take a second look.

I love these and I have a serious question - why is the error bar on the last column not equally spread on either side of the data point? Why is the top bar shorter?
