You may not know the name Gary Trudeau. But it is quite likely you know his cartoon strip, Doonesbury. Well, the strip is unabashedly anti-Bush/Cheney.
Needless to say I am huge fan as I find his quality of satire to be really top notch. But apparently divergent viewpoints have no place in the American psyche. The comic strip which felt the ire of Republican readers in several newspapers across the country had already been dropped for his portrayal of the bungled war in Iraq. Now this. Toe the party line, or you will get dropped like a hot potato (or is that “potatoe,” Mr. Quayle?)
Despite what Dubya says about bringing the country together, I am afraid, very afraid of things to come.
Hold on a second, someone is knocking at my door …
Editorial cartoonist Steve Brodner's book Freedom Fries is now out. An excerpt of the book appears on Mediabistro.com. Fantagraphics publishes the book.
“…while Brodner is a committed hunter of Bush meat he can roast Democrats with the best of them (and we do mean Clinton).”
Unlike some cartoonists who clearly favor one party over another, Brodner takes on just about anything that's happening out in the political spectrum.
I have extolled the virtues of having a designer design your web site. If you are interested in other ways of branding, perhaps a logo, there are artists (not
necessarily starving) would be happy to come up with something that is all you! For example, the logo on the upper left corner of this page is by Arindam Mukherjee. I was curious to know who had inspired him.
“Of late, I miss R.K. Laxman's cartoons on the Times of India's web site. Laxman retired from TOI recently after tickling India's funny bone with his sharp cartoons for decades. The baton now seems to have been passed to Ajit Ninan; my pick for India's best and funniest. Ninan, whom I admire and got the chance to work with at India Today, uses form, color and lines to his maximum advantage. My early days as a cartoonist has gone emulating Ninan's style. Here, I tried to do a Ninan with Kerry and Flip-flops.”
In the spirit of journalistic fairness Arindam promises me that he is working on an illustration depicting W. If you enjoy Arindam's work, please consider hiring him on. I think he is fantastic!
