7. Anita Kunz
Anita Kunz is an artist who speaks the truth. In her work, through analogy, thoughtful comparison, exaggeration, and a razor wit. Her work is so well crafted, that her content always comes to the forefront and I forget how well painted, drawn, and composed it is. In her blog, I have found thoughtful and incisive writing on social issues, copyright, the environment, and various other topics. It is rare for me to find someone who is not afraid to speak their heart, even if it means risking offending the powerful.
