The Portrait is the 212th Subnormality comic.

Plot Summary Edit

In Renaissance Italy, Sphynx meets an artist who asks her to pose for a portrait. After many weeks of work, the artist is finally happy with the painting, but refuses to show her the work until he has added the finishing touches. Watching the unveiling, she learns to her displeasure that the artist has altered the picture to put her head on a human body.

In the modern day, PHG is reading a magazine. She asks the Sphynx whether Photoshopping is a new behaviour for humanity, or part of a larger trend. The Sphynx answers that it is always the latter.
