Sometimes life (and art) aren’t fair, particularly in the case of classic Looney Tunes character Wile E. Coyote. So, let us consider his artistic brilliance and how his violence overshadows it.

Wait, would this body of work fall into hyperrealism, land art, installation? Mr. Coyote was clearly ahead of his time.

      1. It was me. You have me in there, buried between people who reused the joke without attribution, months to years after my original post. I accept plagiarism as a reality from one-off tweeters / reddit, but for an article, I feel like I’m justified in hoping for an effort at attribution?
