This Saturday morning cartoon goes out to the folks who inspired it, among them Elizabeth Bear, Leah Bobbet, and Gemma Files,  who, last weekend at Readercon, gave us clear explanations of the subtext evident in their work. Using yoga.

The Cycle of Art: So you’ve just created your masterpiece. Here’s what’s going to happen to it. (3:09 minutes)
