Description:

“So over on my Discord chat there’s been some on and off discussion of Little Pip and how at the end of FoE she’s emblematic of the perfect Taoist king, effectively non-existent in the affairs of the people, benevolently ruling from behind the scenes and allowing his or her subjects to take all of the credit.
 
So I had to get around to drawing Pip as a Chinese proto-Anarchist in that sense. And on the way playing around to figure out how to make vector drawings look pen-drawn.”

Ἵππος Κωνσταντινουπόλεως
不尚賢,使民不爭;不貴難得之貨,使民不為盜;不見可欲,使心不亂。是以聖人之治,虛其心,實其腹,弱其志,強其骨。常使民無知無欲。使夫知者不敢為也。為無為,則無不治。
 
Don’t glorify heroes,  
And people will not contend.  
Don’t treasure rare objects,  
And no one will steal.  
Don’t display what people desire,  
And their hearts will not be disturbed.

 
Therefore,  
The Sage rules  
By emptying hearts and filling bellies,  
By weakening ambitions and strengthening bones;  
Leads people  
Away from knowing and wanting;  
Deters those who know too much  
From going too far:  
Practices non-action  
And the natural order is not disrupted.
