"Alaska Snowhenge"

This panel serves as an addendum to the earlier cartoon on the same subject matter. And just like that other one, probably there's another panel out there somewhere with the exact same or similar theme. If there is, I don't really want to know about it, not gonna go looking for it either, and really don't care. It's a topic that I've commented on in many a classroom re: the concept of originality in art: even if it has been done before, so what, do it anyways - if not making it better then at least make it yours. It's a shame that even the merest possibility of coming across as someone who just copied someone else's idea (which incidentally can't be copyrighted anyways) is enough to creatively hamstring some people's artistic efforts. It's also one of the fundamental flaws behind excessive and archaic copyright law.
