Local artist Isaac Brynjegard-Bialik presents an exhibit of his "fine art mash-up" works like this one at Brave New World Comics in Newhall on Saturday, Sept. 11.
On Saturday, Sept. 11, he's bringing them back-cut up into little pieces as part of his new art exhibition, "You did WHAT to my comics!?!"
Brynjegard-Bialik refers to the show as "a fine art mash-up," as it brings together the traditional art of papercutting with the pervasive lowbrow art of comics and yields a unique artistic vision.
"So many cultures have this idea of a god who is both smart and foolish, advocate and nemesis. Bringing Coyote and Loki together illustrates how these same ideas pop up in different places and times."

There's a slight hint of the New Agey type "scholarship" that mangles entirely different deities together to claim they are the same.
Yeah, on TV Tropes, it's called Cut And Paste Translation.
