My friend Martin Kozlowski is the editor (and brilliant political cartoon satirist) of INX, the preeminent political cartoon service that provides weekly biting political and social cartoons to magazines and newspapersâ¦ Many years ago I used to be a somewhat regular contributor to INXâ¦ but my own illustration career path veered me away from doing political cartoons anymore, but on rare occasion these days I do create a soft political cartoon and send it over to Martin for him to include in that weekâs current INX package.
I had been listening to some political pundits on TV questioning how effective Obama may be in his remaining two years in officeâ¦ and so an image popped into my mind of President Obama as a somewhat weary, scrawny boxer flexing his muscles, ready to try and fight the good fight for another two years.
I created this charcoal drawing of the Commander in Chief with a tattoo on his chest and arms saying, “Two More Years” complete with a soaring eagle for added commentary on his decided love for America -in case anyone is still wondering.
to view my illustration art samples. (and click on the NEW STUFF portfolio to see all my new imagesâ¦ which are a stylistic break from the lighter, whimsical illustration images I am more know for with art directors, especially for all the childrenâs picture books Iâve illustrated over the past dozen years.
Later this year I will have two more illustrated picture books released: “The Fantastic Ferris Wheel” (written by Betsy Harvey Kraft) published by Macmillan/Christy Ottaviano Books. Also,“Wild Child” written & illustrated by myself, and published by Abrams Books.
