the funniest part of course is that he did the cartoon, put the poster of trump with 'open season', put the witches and gave them shotguns, and then thought about his audience for a second, and wrote TRUMP HUNT in big letters, just in case

political cartoons are maybe the single worst medium with regard to "show don't tell." the overwhelming majority, whatever their politics, would be massively improved by an editor nixing some number of written labels. also a high ratio of speech balloons contorting into overworded messes to explain the background and then convey the joke, which to other humorists is usually a sign that the joke isn't going to work.

Occasionally I wonder, when the WP comes up, whether Jeff Bezos is not in fact a more malign or potentially more malign figure than Trump, taking a broad view. But I guess that isn't the conversation Ben Garrison is interested in having.

I'm sort of grimly fascinated by Ben Garrison. How does he claim to be a "rogue cartoonist" when one of his defining features is completely unquestioning loyalty to the president of the USA? What's he going to do when the Trump project inevitably disintegrates? Is there a point where he would be disillusioned? What then?

Camaraderie at Arms Length, Wednesday, 31 May 2017 20:41 (five months ago) Permalink

He's also written a long article entitled "Advice for Aspiring Cartoonists" in case anyone wants to follow in his footsteps.

Camaraderie at Arms Length, Wednesday, 31 May 2017 20:45 (five months ago) Permalink

when the Trump project inevitably disintegrates it will be because of the sinister machinations of the shadowy elite made up of the Republican establishment the Deep State and the Rothschilds

the media has its golden goose so the "project" (whatever that is) disintegrating not likely to happen. he could be impeached and exiled from the country and we will still hear about every single dumb thing he tweets for the rest of his and our livee.

"How does he claim to be a "rogue cartoonist" when one of his defining features is completely unquestioning loyalty to the president of the USA?"

this is trump's base generally; hence the focus on the evil media and derp state machinations to explain why having trump in charge isn't magically fulfilling all their dreams and changing the entire system.

Trump had the conspiracy theorist types in his pocket from the get-go; had assumed that if he were ever to win he'd lose them instantly, like they'd have to think "welp, he's a lizard person/bilderberg stooge/whatever now". But the combative nature of his presidency, the fact that it always looks just about to fall apart, has made it so you can now maintain wake up sheeple cred while repping for the most powerful man in the United States.

looks more like Loretta imo

soref, Wednesday, 21 June 2017 17:41 (five months ago) Permalink

It's relevant because America's relationship with Trump is much like Leroy and Loretta's marriage. Trump is drunk again at a party and dancing with a floozy while wearing a lampshade. Loretta is spending Leroy's payceck at the department store again.

I'm not sure which one is which here, but it makes sense if you think about it.

A good Medium piece on Garrison. (You'll have to log in to read it.)

...Garrison is a prolific and highly partisan political cartoonist whose work appears online, which means he is an artist in the same way that people who author long, high-pitched farts on mass transit are musicians. As a political cartoonist, Garrison is both passably skillful in his craft and so flubby and overdetermined in his politics and aesthetic that you can basically smell his upsetting breath in your face every time you look at something he’s drawn...Garrison’s overstuffed cartoons are all little thudding epics, reliably bursting with every meme currently roiling the Extremely Online right. Imagine a version of Hieronymus Bosch who sincerely believes in Pizzagate, never goes outside, and clearly labels everything, and you have Ben Garrison.
