we seem to being going to war with a poorer and poorer quality of cartoons. Colin Powell in the lead up to Iraq at least had soothing colors, shading, nice strong lines, dynamic compositions, and an overall good use of space. He put time into the cartoons that led to probably better than a hundred thousand Iraqis dying, 4000 plus Americans and trillions of wasted dollars. It’s like Netanyahu didn’t even try. A circle in black marker with a fuse on it. By the quality of the cartoon, can we guess that this will be a smaller war, or are they so massively blowing the marketing budget on war preparations because this one will dwarf Iraq by comparison?

We fell for this…

 

 

…are we really going to fall for this?
