"Political Suicide"

Been doodling Don (R-NRA) for many years now (almost as much as the other cornucopia of buffoonery): brandishing his oosik, headless, emerging from an outhouse, one slice in a sandwich, urinating on endangered species, spewing toxic lies, etc.
...more below the fold...  

But this latest round of appalling idiocy epitomizes the pure hypocrisy and arrogance of someone who's been wallowing in the proverbial trough of "government largess" for over forty years. So, once again - maybe for the last time - it was back to the drawing board for another take, hopefully one that encapsulates the myriad of charm offensives committed over his record of stellar statesmanship.

"The last guy who touched me ended up on the ground breakdancing"

By definition of a caricature is "a picture, description, or imitation of a person or thing in which certain striking characteristics are exaggerated in order to create a comic or grotesque effect." And so the challenge here is in depicting someone who already is a cartoon. Still, nobody's laughing: suicide is a serious issue in Alaska (link to helpline).

Now, not that looks are everything, and it would mean no more drawing from a deep, dependable well of inspiration, but it's definitely time for a change - a fresh face. Besides, Forrest is pretty funny-looking will be really fun to draw.
