Political Art & Cartoonists

A picture is worth a thousand words.  But when the picture exposes corruption at every level in government, its value increases exponentially.

People hardly read anymore which is why art has such a high value in our ever increasingly dumbed-down world.  Our attention span seems to be dropping precipitously which makes the implementation of memes all the more appropriate. Are you still with me?

The following are some of my favorite political cartoonists, artists, and illustrators of the truth.

David Dees

Red Panels

“I created this comic to share perspectives I have found lacking elsewhere on the internet. It is an attempt to achieve sanity through satire from the lunacy of a mad world. I hope it is also a place of respite for you. ” -Red

A. F. Branco

 

“Branco is a surgeon and his pen is his scalpel, an instrument he wields with laser-like precision in cutting through the philosophical morass of liberal orthodoxy.”

Heisenburger King

“I’ve got opinions which are likely unpopular with those leaning towards the left…and right. But mostly left.” -Heisenburger King

Anthony Freda

“Freda creates his potent and provocative illustrations with a combination of found objects and surfaces, collage and drawing—all mixed together to great effect. Freda says that he uses art “as a tool of political activism”

Ben Garrison

“We are trying to do our part by means of artwork to help raise awareness of the drift toward tyranny. We as private citizens need to reclaim and fight for our rights as enumerated in our Constitution. It’s time to speak out and express our outrage at the growing tyranny of Big Government. That’s why we created GrrrGraphics!”

Anons at 4chan began to edit Ben’s illustrations. His alter-ego is now known as Zyklon Ben.

Herbert Smagon

 

Born in modern day Poland on January 2, 1927, Herbert Smagon won an award for ‘best young artist from the city of Vienna’ in the mid 40’s. His paintings about the end of WWII in Germany are like a graphic depiction of HELLSTORM The Death of Nazi Germany.  His work tells the story of the horrors of the spoils of war.
