A parody of Bosch's "The Garden Of Earthly Delights," where the consuming mouth wears a "Make America Great Again" hat. Person: Ok, ok, you're right I shoulda voted.
My compliments, great ‘toon. It’s Brexit all over again. Of course for the Anglophiles amongst us, the bright news is, if the US elects trump, the UK’s vote will no longer be the standing punchline for comics around the world. It will be that the US elected a conman as president
Dante did describe an America run by Trump and backers.
Nice use of Bosch!
Great artwork! Hateful comments from the ultra right in 3 2 1.
In literary and real dystopias we never see it from those who do well in it and think it a Heaven on Earth.
America’s Dark Ages, courtesy of the GOP’s lovechild, Trump.
Beautifully done, Matt.
Yet ANOTHER libtoon blasting Trump.GASPHow brave…
Beautiful ’toon. And frighteningly plausible.
Drump’s campaign of Hate is the main reason I made my decision on who to vote for Immediately after the Rethuglican convention. Hint … it was NOT him.
No apologies needed – it’s BRILLIANT!
This toon is done with reference to The Garden of Earthly Delights, the tryptic by Bosch, now in the Prado in Madrid. The irony here is that art historians can’t agree whether the painting is bemoaning the loss of earthly pleasures in the fall from grace, or alternately warning of the evils of the flesh. I saw the painting earlier this year on a business trip to Madrid. It was far less impressive to my modern eyes than it must have been to the Flemish in the 1500’s. We have become sated with vivid imagery, and this old image no longer seems either shocking or particularly gruesome or disturbing. Trump, however IS shocking, and it’s his character that’s troubling, not whatever “policies” he pretends to support in the moment. Sociopathic narcissism has no associated political policies. It’s just a sick consciousness stumbling around seeking validation to counter a very deep well of self-loathing. That’s Trump. It would be very sad if he wasn’t so dangerous.
Bravo. The coward troll has probably run back under its rock, but your answer to it is excellent. Thanks dude!
When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.
As a big Bosch fan, I love this cartoon. Good work!
May you live in interesting times
rather than the hell republicans are trying to create.
It is not Brexit. There are many differences between the US prez election and the Brexit referendum. Thank goodness.
Welcome to the first ring of hell.
