The Scottish Shrigley went to art school, as did Jeffery Brown, and both deliberately create crudely drawn pen and ink images for comic effect. Here the effect works well paired with his mock-epic philosophical and political project: To show his plan to save the world. It's droll humor, clearly making fun of the fact that he has no plan and the book lacks any coherence whatsoever. Shrigley is not into coherence. That's not who is professionally or personally. Here's some images from it:

More Shrigley madness. This one comes with many pages of handwritten lists that could read as absurdist poems of the highest order. Like...

Things That Can Be Used as Currency

Some of these drawings are more cute, or even more positive than anything I've seen from him before. But mostly, as usual, Shrigley is darkly hilarious, and a man we should all fear.

I've been a fan of Shrigley for years but this left me cold. It lacks his usual humour and whimsy.

Way too many drawn dicks in this book. It's mostly dribble, I liked 2 of the pages.

“The problem: You are part of it.”

“Hitch a ride on the garbage truck, or are you too proud?”

“It is not possible to think the unthinkable, so stop trying.”

“The weather is controlled by my cat’s thoughts.”

Social stratification:
The cream rises to the top.
The crud stays at the bottom.
The croutons stay in the middle.
The croutons are made of stale bread.

Should household pets be allowed to vote? Yes.
