Cartoons and caricatures can bring a website, blog, book or magazine to life with their colour, humour and instant visual communication of information. Illustrated words are so much more attractive to read than just endless blocks of grey text and cartoon illustrations can often say more than a thousand words!
THIS CARICATURE OF Hillary Clinton appears at the moment when she has decided to run for the Democratic Party nomination as Presidential candidate.
Of course, the world’s pundits are excitedly predicting that the wife of former President Bill Clinton will become America’s first ever woman President.
President Barack Obama has already said that Mrs Clinton, 67, would make an “excellent president”.
The Republicans had also hoped to offer the product from a political dynasty as their Presdiential hope. The former Florida Governor and brother of George W Bush, Jeb Bush said on Sunday that America “must do better than the Obama-Clinton foreign policy that has damaged relationships with our allies and emboldened our enemies”.
The Clinton Foundation, a charity set up by Mr and Mrs Clinton, has also been criticized for benefiting from contributions from foreign goverments.
Conveniently, with immaculate timing, Hillary Clinton has announced that she has resigned from the board of directors, and that foundation policy is under review.
As far at the caricature of Hillary Clinton goes, it would be easy to go overboard on the wrinkles and crinkles as some other artists have done. Personally, blessed, as I am, with a milder style, I hate risking losing the facial likeness through over-exaggeration. Another black and white one, though. Once I am happy with the pencil rough, it is a joy to turn on the music and get stuck into layer upon layer of cross-hatching.
