So… I actually composed this meme back in January, in time for the Inauguration… but recent events have made it perhaps even more relevant today so I’m finally getting around to putting it on the blog. I still have a lot of stuff that I’ve done this year that never managed to make it to the blog, but I’m starting to try and catch up!
I did post this on Facebook back then, to mixed reactions… including at least one Donald Trump supporter who didn’t “get it” apparently. I thought it was a pretty good parody of the Independence Day movie poster, juxtaposed with reaction to last year’s Presidential election here in the US. Nothing super-profound or anything… just an obvious jab. 🙂 It’s a mixture of bits from the original movie poster and some heads of appropriate political figures (Mike Pence, Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin) that I found on the Internet to mash-up together in Photoshop.
Let me know what you think, and remember, if you’d like an original commission by me or would like to hire me as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.
*For those not in the know… the Joker has sometimes been called the Clown Prince of Crime. I thought that made for a funny bit of name wordplay here, but I might be insane.
*Buzz is obviously quoting that famous professional wrestler, Hulk “The Rock” Hogan in that first panel 🙂 Oh, and I don’t know what a Willie Nelson is either.
*It’s a Seinfeld and Back to the Future II parody rolled into one! I wanted to do this one last Sunday, but due to the coloring work I had going on all week I didn’t get time to draw the DeLorean until today… and the cartoon was nothing without the cool car! 🙂
*It’s so weird when reality is less believable than an old Seinfeld episode, isn’t it? Wow!
*It’s funny because it’s true! Seriously… I was really sick on Sunday, the kind of sick of which you never wish to speak of again… but it did inspire this comic, so there’s that 🙂
*Do music clubs even still exist? Nobody knows…
*The simplest solutions are always the easiest, am I right? 😉 Now… about those four suits of happiness…
*Special thanks (or should that be blame) go out to Ben Herman for inspiring the worst part of today’s gag! You should also go check out his blog.
