I just illustrated Peggy Noonan's article where she created a negative attack ad against Abraham Lincoln, endorsed by his pollical opponent, Steven Douglas. She writes in this article that Attack ads are the dreck of democracy." I'm a huge Abraham Lincoln fan, however, I had to portray him as a little "cockeyed" for her article.
I'm been strangely drawn to the entertainment value of some of the Republican T.V. debates. I'm also shocked at how much money these millionares spend on these negative ads.
The art was done for Kate La Voie and Angela Morris of the Wall Street Journal.
