The epiphany’s over

A day late for Epiphany, this epiphany cartoon:


A play on Breakfast at Tiffany’s, with the Tiffany’s / Epiphany’s pun, using the noun epiphany ‘a moment of sudden revelation or insight’ (NOAD2).

The movie (and the novella), from Wikipedia:


Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a 1961 American romantic comedy film directed by Blake Edwards and written by George Axelrod, loosely based on Truman Capote’s [1958] novella of the same name. Starring Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard, and featuring Patricia Neal, Buddy Ebsen, Martin Balsam, and Mickey Rooney, the film was initially released on October 5, 1961 by Paramount Pictures.

Hepburn’s portrayal of Holly Golightly as the naïve, eccentric socialite is generally considered to be the actress’s most memorable and identifiable role. Hepburn regarded it as one of her most challenging roles, since she was an introvert required to play an extrovert.

On the artist: The Surreal McCoy‘s homepage just lists places where the cartoons have appeared. From the list, the cartoonist seems pretty clearly British, probably English specifically. But I have no name or other information.

Two more cartoons from this source:

An allusion to Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. (On the book, see this posting of mine.)
