I own a metaphor!

I am now the proud owner of an original piece of Drew Weing art! Drew is selling pieces from his excellent works,and I chose this one:



I like this one so much both because it reflects a feeling common to both comic authors and academics (of which I'm both), as well as it shows a great conceptual metaphor. Here, the head is mapped to the idea of a container that bursts when faced with emotional overload, just like a pot of water bubbles over when the water boils. In fact, I discussed this metaphor for this very comic last year in this post.

So, if you're interested in helping out a great author and buying some great original comic art for ridiculous prices, head on over to his site!
