For Art's Sake: Good God, Charlie Brown!

I know PEANUTS satires are nothing new.( this one appeared in the COMICS BUYER'S GUIDE in 1997) I'm not sure how I came up with this one, but I do know that although I thought PEANUTS was a good strip, the treatment of Charlie Brown often was a bit too much for me to take. (maybe due to I got a TON of that similar treatment in real-life during my own childhood) I've always wondered (or wished) what would happen If good ol' Charlie Brown ever reached his limit. (which sadly, seems to be happening with real-life people way too often these days) In any case, since the PEANUTS movie is coming soon…I really liked how I drew the last panel, with my talking easel Monet giving that Schulz-like smirk.
