I need to just stop
The following was written about two or three weeks ago.
Another cover for The Week with D. Trump. Ugh. What is his appeal? I hear people say he "speaks his mind". Or "He's exposing everyone to be the phonies we knew they were". He's weirdly prudish. He'll insight people towards violence at a rally and then act like he's shocked that there was violence when he appears on Good Morning America. And there is the problem. It's a profit motive... I forget which movie had that line in it. Anyway, the news is for profit. Smart intelligent conversation and debate isn't as exciting as two "men" running for public office prudishly talking about their dick sizes on national television. Cock talk gets better ratings ie., bigger profits. The press coverage of the village idiot for entertainment has given the idiot a big forum to vomit his idiot rhetoric to people who are sick of uninspired politicians.
Bernie Sanders is the scary person to the Democrats because he has inspired a lot of people. Just not enough. The press ignores him because he talks about issues, and he is a gentleman to the people he is running against, and he is the only one (similar to Trump) that isn't owned by large corporations. Although I suspect Trump has some people he owes. Sanders also speaks his mind. Sanders has also exposed the establishment in the Democratic party. And a big media bias as well.
I'm not going to post any more Trumps here unless it's about his failure to get elected. Feel the Bern!
Original color sketch. Everything was OK until...
They suggested a dark blue back ground. I feel that the red back ground was more emotional and was a little more raw. The Week isn't that kind of magazine. I think this goes with their character.
Cover for The Week
So far so good with my projects for 2016. I did a rare caricature gig at a corporate event for The Week's PR department. I do them, but I'm not cheap! heh. I have several irons near the fire. I'd say they "in" it but it's way too early for that. So in the general vicinity of a theoretical fire is where I'd put them. More on that to come. Some maybe in my news letter!
This was a cover I did for The Week Magazine last week as Bernie Sanders has been slowly and steadily improving and overtaking Hillary in the poles. I was never for Hillary in the first place. My general rules is one president per family. Even though she married into it, sorry Hillary. I must be devastating her right now. I'm sure of the millions and millions of people visiting my page for my superior expertise on all things political and "other" in the world... Oh yeah, I always forget to mention my rocket scientist credentials (RIP Yvonne Brill) I'm also well versed in every language ever created... and I can occasionally run a pool table while chewing gum.
Feel the Bern.
