Ill. Fri. - Remember


Elephants are supposed to have phenomenal memories, but you'd never know it with the recent parade of pachyderms up to testify on Capitol Hill. Is it true that an elephant never forgets? "I don't recall."

Great Elephant!
I like "remember" symbolism of the red string.
Nice.

Oh the ludicrous nature of politics means we will always have something to illustrate. Great cartoon. Very well executed.

I don't recall when the decision was made to visit your blog... but I'm glad I did. :) This is fun! Mr. Gonzales is in Indy today, so this was perfect timing to visit your work.

Very funny! As a ABC affliate graphic artist, I can really relate! Surely this and a donkey version could be used in the next year with elections heating up!
Nice form and exaggeration.

That's what we need more of... REAL elephants with political power! Although, it would be tough not to get trampled on while on your way to a meeting.

Great job on this one, and your other illustrations are just as awesome!

Awesome repuglican! Their memory is long unless you ask them about firing lawyers or the iran contra scandal. :)))))~~~~
I had to do it. I love your work though. Your drawing skills rule.

Great stuff!

Greg Hartman said...

Fantastic drawing skills and execution Jim...what a shame that such a slimy party of late has such a great symbol to represent them. Yeah, Gonzales is a piece of work...not as good as yours unfortunatly.

awesome job on the colors!

Arkonbey said...

very strong. Quick, send it to the New Yorker! It would have made a fabulous cover for the week after the hearings.

Funny thing is this is the second IF challenge that had an elephant with a string tied to his trunk...
