Celebrate Diverse Beauty (Comic #573)

This comic is inspired by Aikido and the desire to celebrate beauty more diversely. I told someone at my dojo how beautiful his sword work was. I think platonic beauty is not a compliment men get often, which is a bit sad. I tried to explain it, I don’t think I did a great job, though I added “it’s so pretty!” to my explanation. There is a beauty in focus, attention and purpose. A beauty being absolutely present to the thingness of things, the strength, wisdom and skill to attend to it. It’s pretty! And exciting! We should celebrate beauty more in all its forms and for all genders. And so, when it came to embodying that ideal in a comic, who better than Bunson and Boot?
