The Date?

by princeofpersia on

Is the date below Iraj's autograph right? Did he draw this in 2010? The date reads 1/30/10!!??

I,unlike some learned friends, do believe that the foundation of the American ME "policy" is indeed in Africa. If I had Iraj's talent I would have added the anxious eyes of some Arab dictators to the whole picture, as well.

Never increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything.



The Dinosaurs’ Pillars @ Stake

by Demo on

The cartoonist is wrong about his message here as the historians are wrong about the dinosaurs’ extinctions. First of all Egypt is in Africa & not in ME. Second the whole ME including our motherland has been ruled by the prehistorically discovered Dinosaurs like Mubarak for decades. Name one which is not? The oppressed young in ME, and of the whole world indeed, is watching Egypt now. Pharaohs in whole ME have all soiled their underpants & must all be prepared for the exiles lives in the “Jurassic Park” soon. The revolutionary young preys are about to replace them!

I so admire your skill and talent to critique artworks (or attempts thereof).

Here's a critique of your works which I hope you will take as constructive. The sentiments you express in your work strike me to be what you really feel; so "A" for sincerity. Your drawing style is unique, so "A" for graphic design. Your weakness as an artist, however, is in your strict imitiation of the propaganda "art" style approaching stylistic plagarism. This absense of creativity clobbers your high marks for passion and technique.  Your work submits its will and imagination to the dogma you hold. The result is a timid art which reflects your worry that if you introduce imagination or cleverness into the work, it may not do exactly as the dogma would have it.  

Of course all art dealing with politics attempts to persuade with a message. The difference between art and mere graphics in this arena is not in the drawing technique. The difference is that with art the message belongs to the artist whereas with propaganda graphics/posters the person doing the drawing is mindlessly passing on a pre packaged message. We have seen good technique from you, but you have yet to display talent. Please feel free to display it in your next work. Looking forward.
