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 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).
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.
