This is a journal drawing I did after the 9/11 attacks and in the early days of the buildup to the invasion of Iraq. It was done at a time when anyone who dissented was treated as an anti-American apologist for terrorists. (Someone actually called me this in response to a letter I wrote expressing the need for intelligent, well thought out actions, not all out war.)
Anyway, it is GWB. I was trying to decide while listening to all of his lies whether he most resembled a rat, weasel, or snake. I think any of these comparisons only demonize the poor animals referenced, and obfuscate the truth, that he could only be one kind of animal, human.
I submitted the piece to an online show at Drawger and they accepted it. The entire show can be seen here: Drawger: Portraits of a President.
