Snitches Get Stitches by Deep-Hurting Snitches Get Stitches by Deep-Hurting
This cartoon, which refers to Wikileaks' recent leaking of US diplomatic cables, was drawn before Julian Assange's recent arrest. I thought about doing a gag referring to a bully decrying schoolyard tattling, but then decided it'd be funnier and more meaningful (if a little less accessible) to compare the US government to a bunch of gangland thugs by referencing the "Stop Snitchin'" campaign of police informant intimidation from a few years ago.

I tried to draw Hillary Clinton a little more realistically than I usually do, both because I want to experiment with my style of caricature more, and because I thought it'd make her look more serious. I started out trying to color it like an illustration from the cover of Grand Theft Auto, but kind of got away from that by the time I was finished.

Please view the cartoon on my website here. Also, support Wikileaks!

...just when you thought Hillary Clinton couldn't get any scarier. Though ironically, she is pro-gun control...ugh that was meant to be humorous, but sadly it was not.

I love Hillary's expression in this. She seems very pissed off, of course, but also like she's pissed off because someone embarrassed her. Which is, I suppose, exactly what happened.

I love it.
You portrait the US government as the criminals and WikiLeaks and the world's free media as the law enforcement.

I didn't even notice the gun until after I had written the lines above, which goes to show that you send a clear message even without the gun. But the gun might help others who don't see that link in the description to understand the message.
