"Smile: Ley Lines #17" by Whit Taylor
Ley Lines is a quarterly publication dedicated to exploring the intersection of comics and the various fields of art & culture that inspire us.
"Anatomy of ambivalence”
Whit Taylor muses on Leonardo da Vinci's world famous painting, thinking about its origins and impact via scientific and anecdotal lenses. This includes how it has intersected with her own life, encountering the ubiquitous work as a child and even portraying the painting in a school play. Ultimately, are all of Mona Lisa’s mysteries worth more than Tomie dePaola’s Strega Nona, who, rather than just sitting there, “makes the pasta?”
