I take Great Delight in Creating Enormous Confusion and Uncertainty. I Like to Think I Leave a Trail of very Perplexed People with the Potential - In a Sort of Older, Bib Lical Sense - To be Humbled by Reality. They might not be So Cocksure About Things. To me that is the Beginning of Functional Organizations. Functional Values.

When Someone Says "Political Cartoonist" my Mind Conjures up Images of Someone Very Much Involved In the body politic, Constantly Commenting on Political Issues, Political Personalities, Political Situations. I Think that Most Editorial and Political Cartooning Operates Within the Assumed Values of our Culture. We Have a Whole net of definitions as to what is Bad, what must be Avoided, what must Be Sought, and Cartoonists Consistently Take One Side or Another, Commenting on this Aspect or that, Endlessly Reflecting the Traditional Aspirations and Warnings of Man.

I Feel a Sense of Frustration in These Areas, Constantly Dwelling in the Realm of One Political Position Against Another, One Political Attitude Against Another. All These Things Are Too Cut And Dried. Political Cartoonists are Playing with Blocks And i Have A Feeling I Want to Break IT, I Want to Break it All and Say "Look at what is! Look at The Hard Void!"
