Even though these drawings are giggle-worthy they do have some serious undertones. Recently I have been reading theories on the interpretations of fairy-tales and their importance in our lives, both as children and adults. The first drawing could be seen to be quite obviously about the lack of gallantry in the common male but also the complexities and perhaps disappointment of contemporary relationships compared to those told in fairy-tales where love conquers all. Subtly how ever in the second one could adopt the Freudian view of the frogs as symbols of the repression of sexual anxieties and/or the liberation of such anxieties. But you don’t have to read into things if you don’t want to then merely enjoy these pictures for what they are to you.
