Politics as Usual (not)

When Nixon won, the late NY Times film critic Pauline Kael said, "How could he have won? No one I know voted for him!" And so it was last night - actually I do know one person who voted for McCain. This fall in my Digital Drawing & Painting class at CCA we did political art pieces - part of the assignment was to plan how to publish or exploit the work. Some posted them around school, some emailed them just to friends, and some used the internet. Anything possibly considered political was fair game. Here are my two pieces. The Waiting Room is from one of my triptychs. The War Bride appropriates Nina Berman's amazing photograph which in my opinion says it all about this war.
