Thought I'd share my recent political artwork with you all 😀

My degree is a BFA in illustration. I went to art college & everything but roughly 15 years ago after being a professional illustrator I decided to make a career change to be a professional nature photographer.

I've always loved editorial illustration. It's something I studied & did for many years, especially the political side of things. So I decided to do something I've not done in awhile.

I hope you all enjoy it.
This is my vision of Trump as Frankenstein 😀

... You should "sign" one, unless I am not seeing a credit... I sometimes save and re-post images... but I like to credit and thank the original artist.

Instagram? Smugmug

Great illustration, but since it's Trump I think his face should be fatter. 😉

I have a Fine Art America account, but I hardly post on it. I put most of my pics on Instagram.

You could do a lot for the wild horses and burros to bring awareness to the fact that in spite of the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act of 1971 the very government agencies tasked with protecting them are in fact managing them to extinction.

For some reason, I am not entirely disgusted by this version...there is a subtle sadness...somehow.
