Crooks and Liars (and Fascists, apparently!)

I couldn't let this image I created for Seattle's The Stranger go unseen by the masses. It's so seldom I get to illustrate a topic I feel so passionate about. Follow this link for David Goldstein's thoughtful and sadly appropriate essay on Bush's domestic spying program.

I imagine you read the article? Were you asked to draw just what you did, or did you draw your take on the issue?

Actually, I didn't read the article until afterward...the art director just told me the gist of the story, and I came up with the "dial" concept and drew the image from there. Creating an image without first reading the accompanying material is unfortunately one of the realities of the weekly paper biz!
