Some Political Stuff

Anyone who's ever talked to me for five minutes could probably tell that I'm a fairly ardent liberal, leaning to the left of most issues... but, being professional means (for the most part) impartiality, so I generally try to keep it even-handed when I'm working for clients (You know, I usually refrain from drawing the GOPers with buck teeth and automatic weapons). If anything, I feel like I've been harshest on the Dems (see Hilary)...but maybe that's more nature's fault than mine!

You are correct in feeling that you stayed neutral towards any one stereotypical characterization in these drawings. However, I don't quite understand why there is the state of Washington behind Hillary. should it be triangular for Washington, D.C.? Some more light on that project would help me understand it more.

Thank you.

That illo was done for The Stranger, a Seattle weekly, about some Clinton campaign stop ahead of the Democratic primaries last December. Hence, the state of Washington is in the background.

Political cartooning has got to be hard to pull off. Love the one with the boy elephant with the Reagan doll and the young donkey in the Obama t. Very clever!

I gotta admit, I really dig the little Ronny doll.

I love that Hillary illo. Looks like some crazed escapee from an old Max Fleischer cartoon. Color on G-Dub is especially nice.

These were great. I especially like the first one with the "pugel sticks".

Buck teeth and automatic weapons?! I don't have buck teeth! lol

Great work, as always.
