    Barbara Schubert - Original Art Illustration for the Harried Housewife's Universe: A Partially Alphabetical Pictorial of Domestic Bliss page 13, "Killing Germs" (Drag Strip Art, 2001). Alternative press artist Barbara Schubert has created twisted images of housewifery and domesticity in what has been described as Norman Rockwell meets Edward Gorey. "Killing Germs" is one of the most popular images from her book The Harried Housewife's Universe with it's absurd battle between the unflappable Harried Housewife and the giant germs that inhabit the family toilet. Mixing post-feminist commentary with the lighter side of daily life, Schubert captures our own epic struggles.
