"In the event of dissent over tax cuts..."
On cartoons and pictograms
Every time I look at one of Ruben Bolling's cartoons, I find myself stunned into silence or laughter. The man is a mad genius. Anyway, you need to see his cartoon this week, a parody of those informational posters that warn you about safety hazards. But instead of "In the event of CHOKING," it's "In the event of DEMONSTRATIONS AGAINST WAR."
It brought to mind another of my favorite cartoons, Ted Rall's pictorial guide to "Arrival in the United States" ("Do you have dark skin? If so, you may be detained and questioned"). I particularly enjoyed that one, as it came out last summer while I was creating pictograms for an information design class.
