Women of Substance Author:Oliver Christianson Being a woman and being Revilo have a lot in common. For one thing, either is a full-time job. For another thing, they're both dang funny. — You women out there know what I mean. We have a delightful way of laughing at life and at ourselves. It's a coping mechanism. And women have plenty to cope with: life & love, dating & dieting, working & work... more »ing out, careers & kids. We've got a lot going on.
That's where Revilo comes in. He has the uncanny ability to capture the humorous little snapshots that make up the world of women. Revilo somehow knows all of our little secrets, like how we get through life with good friends, subtle sarcasm, and the occasional purchase of impractical shoes. He knows the power of cheesecake.
And it's all a good thing. It's nice to be understood for a change. He obviously has a highly evolved, complicated and sensitive feminine side that gives him empathy and insight at near-woman levels. On a scale of 1 to Oprah, he's a definite Helen Reddy. Lucky him. Lucky us.
Revilo's insights into the female condition have delighted and disturbed people of all genders. Even a few pets. Not to mention cartoonists. The pets aren't talking, but here's what one cartoon connoisseur insisted upon saying about his work:
"Oliver Christianson draws some very funny women. What I think I like the most is the complete lack of political correctness. It's refreshing." - Jean Schulz, Founder of the Charles M. Shulz Museum« less
