Headless Chimp Found in Soul-less Rag

Today’s battle about the inane NY Post page Six toon comparing Obama to the dead chimp is joined. Justified calls of condemnation are pouring in.  The Post cartoonist, clearly a hack, either followed a bizarrely racist, brain dead, or both editorial line or came by this all by himself.  It is a piece of dreck any way you slice it.
How should we in the graphic arts community respond?   The best possible way is to resist censorship but DRAW. Here’s my response: the true dead chimp, Editor in Chimp, er, Chief, Col Allen. The only response to freedom of speech . . . is MORE OF IT.


  1. This is the first time I commented here and I must say you give us genuine, and quality information for other bloggers! Great job.
    p.s. You have a very good template . Where have you got it from?
