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 (one year 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 (one year 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

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.

If you're feeling particularly generous, "I am unaware of this history of racist cartoons" is a plausible response, though not a great one if you're a professional cartoonist (or anyone who hasn't been shut in a box for their entire lives). However the next statement should be "I apologise for unintentionally perpetrating this stereotype", not "therefore my cartoon is not racist".

If you need to exhaustively label your caricatures (I'M LOOKING AT YOU, BEN GARRISON), maybe you need to work at drawing recognizable likenesses before you venture into caricature.

ben garrison's caricatures are usually recognisable, though, but he's forced to obsessively label each and every element of his images because he is gripped by some kind of brain disease

why does Roosh have no features, is this a new pick-up artist thing

Neil S, Friday, 14 September 2018 07:56 (one week ago) Permalink

From the blog post with the cartoon

The authoritarian left continues to shut down free speech and they’re getting away with it.

Their latest victim, ‘Roosh,’ sold his books for years on Amazon. His books mostly proffered advice about picking up girls. It’s an unsavory subject to many—especially feminists—but it’s his free speech and he wasn’t advising anything illegal. Bezos suddenly pulled the plug on Roosh’s books—many which were selling well. Who’s next? Conservative cartoonist books because the content offends the left?
Which I understand to mean that he has never heard of Roosh before and has drawn this because it's the latest story doing the rounds on breitbart / the_donald
