Oh, Jeff... I Love You Too, But... by Roy Lichtenstein

Using only a single frame from its source, graphics of Oh, Jeff...I Love You, Too...But... are quite indicative of frustration, but the text in the speech balloon augment the romantic context and the emotional discord.[8] After 1963, Lichtenstein's comics-based women "...look hard, crisp, brittle, and uniformly modish in appearance, as if they all came out of the same pot of makeup." This particular example is one of several that is cropped so closely that the hair flows beyond the edges of the canvas.

Lichtenstein became the master of the artless art of the dot. Dots are to Lichtenstein as "blinks". He often ruminated on them. "The dots can have a purely decorative meaning, or they can mean an industrial way of extending the colour, or data information, or that the image is a fake," he told an interviewer in 1970. "I think those are the meanings the dots have taken on, but I'm not really sure if I haven't made all this up."
