In a word, amazeballz.
Really great stuff. I hate that liberal feel good crap, ‘you are all winners!’, but there was more than one that deserved the crown. The importance of the message was a consideration I took into account as well. The Meesh art was particularly biting …. but this is an election year and that is a fight. And I mean knock-down-drag-out-save-the-free-world fight.
In a just world, these artists/illustrators would be influencing the culture and media in a much wider, far larger national arena, but the culture is under siege given the low state of the world. These talented readers are guerrilla fighters in the information battle-space. Hey, it’s what we do. And their talents were never so desperately needed. If I had the dough I’d be running these posters on the back of Time, Newsweak, Rolling Stone etc.
