The saying goes: A picture is worth a 1000 words.... but in these difficult financial times, the artist is forced to give back at least half of those words, so, currently a picture is only worth, at best, 500 words.
Posted above are a few of my quick, doodle-ish "recession" drawings from a sketch book. At the top Uncle Sam is looking bewildered sitting in one of his sweet bail-out cars. Next is a man hanging from a cliff burdened down with the weight of 2008, 2009, and 2010. Next is a drawing depicting an out-of-work Wall Street exec with a sign stating he'll give back any bonus money given to him... and at the bottom is the screen shot detail of the inxart.com homepage.
INX is a weekly collection of editorial illustrations satirizing current happenings in politics and society, which are leased to newspapers and other publications around the country and abroad for use on their Op/Ed commentary pages. The Creative Director is Martin "KOZ" Kozlowski. I showed my "Will Return Any Bonuses" drawing to Martin, and he selected it for inclusion into the collection of INX images for this week.
