It's very strange to me that I can recognize people's art instantly.

Seriously. I've never been much of an art person. I'd look at it and say, Hey! Flowers! And they're kind of speckly. Impressionist. That's what it's called. This must be that guy, you know, the one who does the impressionist flowers.

But now, I glance at some random image on a website and I say "Hey! That's Foglio!". And then say "Wait, is that Foglio?" and look closely at the text in the image and, sure enough, it's Foglio.

And then the entire post is about how it's Foglio. Which goes to show that maybe this isn't the most useful skill in the world, but it's still neat.

(For those who haven't looked through a lot of Foglio - the guy's amazing. Seriously, this person can draw hardcore alien porn and make it look innocuous, cheerful, and perfectly acceptable. This isn't a hypothetical statement either.)
