Don’t look for intelligent discussion of issues when elected politicians get by saying ‘liberals’ hate ‘real Americans’. Then deny and LIE about saying it, until a tape recorder is played, and we learn the truth.

What can you say about Ronald Searle? He really is one of the most amazing artists, commercial or otherwise, I can think of. His work seeped into my mind from my early childhood when my dad would rip out anything he could find by Searle from magazines and newspapers. If I close my eyes I can see images he created and I can’t tell you when I saw them exactly, but the images are glued in my mind. Powerful line and wistful watercolor style paint. He seems a completely original force of cartoon nature. His drawings being at once, simple and broad and at the same time, beautifully rendered and carefully drafted. His work tends to hit me in the gut and mind at the same time. This is a wonderful site dedicated to him. And the blogger recently traveled and interviewed Mr. Searle in France. Enjoy.
