Dr. Seuss's WWII Political Cartoons

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 12, 2012
Although renowned for his children's books, Dr. Seuss had many practices that ranged from "unorthodox taxidermy" to the political cartoons you see here. UCSD's Mandeville Special Collections Library offers a glimpse at several scans of original drawings and newspaper clippings depicting Dr. Seuss's less known career as a prolific political cartoonist during World War II.

New Book: Presidential Campaign Posters

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 24, 2012
One of the time-honored American traditions that we can all agree is both unnerving and kind of an entertaining spectacle is the Presidential Campaign tour. Republicans, Democrats, all lying in unison, all promising things that are unrealistic, so much fun to get worked up by it all! And, as we saw so clearly in 2008, the campaign poster is an incredibly powerful tool in getting a viral message across. Do you remember John McCain's campaign poster? John who?

Blu in Morocco

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Our May 2012 Public Art special issue features a few works from Italian muralist Blu captured from our travels in Europe last year, and we just saw that the artist was in Morocco to paint a new mural near a border crossing in the North African nation. That appears to a European Union colorway on that wall, no?

What Is She Still Doing Here?

Juxtapoz // Monday, February 13, 2012
"You say, I say, we say - keep your Change.  We'll keep our God.  We'll keep our guns." Maybe that's the Old Testament God of Fear, or in her case, Goddess of Fear.

Art Project: Blonding the Republicans

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 10, 2012
Can the blonding of the Republican wives decide the candidate? What is the fascination with these untouchable unmussable snow queens?

The Super Bowl Blunders

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 10, 2012
Poor Madonna, the half time queen gets pre-blasted by Elton John, who adds further insult by disappearing into a trap door during his pre-half time commercial - the same way she ends her half time show. Then MIA gets a boatload of press for just thrusting her fingerful.

The GOP by Clay Rodery

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 08, 2012
Clay Rodery is an illustrator currently living and working in New York City. With a BFA in Painting and Drawing from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, in 2010 he received his MFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts. This excellent series of caricatures is particularly scathing, portraying GOP presidential contenders as decaying, zombie-esque figureheads.

Romney and the Pork

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 30, 2012
Word is that Romney seemed to be loose and having a good time at the Cuban barbecue. While wielding his carving knife, was he having visions of carving up the porcine Newt Gingrich on Tuesday?

Gingrich and Cervantes In Unison

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 27, 2012
One can image Newt fancying himself tilting at windmills, but wouldn't Cervantes be insulted that Gingrich referred to Spanish as "the language of the ghetto."  And on hearing his his rebuttal spoken in Spanish, we don't think he'll be reading the audio version of Don Quixote.

The Assistant

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 27, 2012
Am I the only one who who sees the moniker Siri and thinks, "Geez, I don't want Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes toddler telling me which exit to take."
