The webcomic A Lesson is Learned but the Damage is Irreversible
published a total of 41 strips over the course of two years – but each strip
was a masterpiece
, visually stunning
and weirdly hilarious
. It hasn't been updated since 2006 (author Dale Beran writes a new comic
with similarly methodical updates), but recently its creators confirmed
a new strip is on the way. Artist David Hellman (also known for his work on gorgeous video game Braid
) has been sharing sketches of the new strip, and last week shared a video on Facebook
showing the process of developing the new strip's layout.
"How did it taste, sir?"
"The milkshake... flavored with everything..."
"Oh. There are essentially two points of view. One is that such an accident mixes the sublime with the profane - invites the pig into the parlor, so to speak – and without any way to exclude those bitter tastes (or those sweet but of contrasting qualities) we get an abomination. An unrefined, grotesque sludge.
"The other view, which I am wont to favor – is that the collision of so many sensations at once drifts over the body like light through a kaleidoscope. Beautiful because it is simplified... just as what is fulsome to us up close weaves itself into a delicate and well-wrought pattern when we gain some distance from our affairs and encompass more and more of the world in our view.
