Cartoons on Mediocrity

Over the past few weeks I have been thinking about how Americans consider familiar concepts such as “average,” “middling,” and “mediocre.” I have written a few posts on the stigma attached to being “average” in American society and how closely the word tracks the negatively charged one, “mediocre.” Americans have decidedly mixed feelings of being in the middle and do not like their work to be either labeled mediocre or have the name attached to individuals. So for the cartoon feature this month, I have collected a dozen or so cartoons about how graphic artists see the word. Enjoy!
