This new collection of more than 150 political cartoons released by Dog Ear Publishing features a nationally recognized cartoonist’s take on world events from 2008 to 2010.
With the power of his artist’s pen, cartoonist Paul Jamiol states his opinions on issues such as the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, terrorism, fear, hatred, torture, the fallen and human rights. Covering the Obama and Bush administrations, the artist comments on politicians on both sides of the aisle, as well as the media. This collection features over 150 cartoons, out of 450 that Jamiol inked in that period. Airport security scanners, lack of support for gays in the military, offshore drilling and disregard for veterans all come under fire. His images convey the issues clearly, sometimes with wit, sometimes with poignancy, but always with power.
The cartoons in “Paul Jamiol’s World 2008-2010” show the power political cartoonists wield with their ability to convey complex ideas with a simple drawing and a few lines of text. As friend Ed Youngblood writes in the foreword, Jamiol’s images “can quickly flip the world right-side-up again after the politicians and pundits have done their best to turn it upside-down. Jamiol’s work also reminds us that the magic of the cartoonist is his ability to make us laugh when there seems to be nothing to laugh about. Jamiol’s pen is a sharp sword that usually cuts in the shape of a smile.”
Author Paul Jamiol has been drawing cartoons for 40 years and has been recognized locally, nationally and internationally. His current work can be seen on his website, Jamiol’s World, as well as TheZoo and Boiling Frogs Post blogs. Jamiol first entered the world of political cartoons by drawing for one local newspaper, and soon was working for five separate newspapers, covering a different issue for each. He has written and illustrated three children’s books through Dog Ear Publishing.
