I never really thought about the difference between op-ed art and political cartoons. Probably because my little local papers never had anything like the op-ed art of the big papers, so I never saw them. This video really made me think about op-ed art in a deeper way than I had ever done before. It's really just too beautiful to be in a newspaper, it seems. I really prefer unique ink drawings over more modern vector graphics and photo manipulations. They seem too sterile, too manufactured. Hand-drawn ink is organic, it comes right out of the psyche, without any filters, photoshop or otherwise.

Mm, more objects from my object sketchbook. More things later. I have been trying to keep up productivity in the midst of a move to my sister's apartment. Closer to my new job, and out of my parents' house = much better. Things, however, are in flux.
