The Bar Art Series, Bonus Entry 2!

The movement is spreading.

The brilliant SMC has gotten on-board with the Bar Art movement, and has introduced her own depiction of "Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress."

Now, in the interest of pickiness (and procrastination), I must take slight issue with SMC's definition of Bar Art. As she defines it, Bar Art is "the result of an odd compulsion to draw out legal theories, usually in stick-man form, in order to vent your feelings of insanity during the Bar studying period."

While I agree that Bar Art often takes the form of the depiction of legal theories, I think it's a sideways definition. I'd say Bar Art is "the use of drawing to vent one's feelings of insanity during the Bar study period, which often takes the form of visual depiction of legal theories." As our own gallery shows (and will continue to show), as often as not, Bar Art (at least as we've pursued it) is merely a depiction of stick figures who are expressing the exasperation and madness they feel in response to the Bar.

But hey, let it be organic. You're all free to do with this what you will, folks.
