I’ve long held a fascination with satire. We British folk are fairly adept at highlighting and ridiculing the ridiculousness of authority.
I had a look around at what other cartoonists were doing in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s inauguration and found some interesting results. It’s not so much the content of the cartoons that I’m interested in as the style in which they are drawn.
Some are full of detail and some are simply ‘dashed off’ style doodles. In every case though the point is made with stark brutality. The man is right there for taking pot shots at. It’s often the case that the arts are the greatest form of opposition to government.
