Cartoons, cartoons, cartoons.... John Crowther's Cartoon Odyssey

I think of it as The Fool's Journey. I've been asked who the "fool" is. It's me, but in the classical sense of the court jester. Only the fool was allowed to tell the king of his follies. All cartoons are available as prints or originals, framed or unframed, through my website or e-mail.

Phoney-Realism

Click on image to view enlarged.

My favorite all-time art story is about the man who painted incredibly realistic, correct-size bills in various denomination, ones, fives, tens, and twenties, always being careful to include some small, barely noticeable flaw. He then traded them for goods, never making any pretense that they were anything else but original works of art. The feds predictably tried to nail him for counterfeiting, but the judge threw the case out. That's one for our side.

Love this, Travesty is always a great cartoon. Good commentary, John C. Rah for our side!
