Posted here is a satirical parody drawing I created recently… depicting President Trump as the vulnerable egg character in the well known nursery rhyme, Humpty-Dumpty, sitting atop his wall…. This is a simple digital line drawing I created in Adobe Illustrator then brought into Adobe Photoshop where I painted digital color as well as adding painted gouache textures I created too.

In this drawing I gave Trumpty-Dumpty a slightly crazed, maniacal look to emphasize his precarious position atop his high wall…

I don’t do too many political illustrations as assignments these days, most of my time now is devoted to writing and creating illustrations for children’s picture books…. You can view some of my recent politically motivated drawings in the political commentary portfolio section on my web site. Many years ago I actually started my illustration career creating many social & political drawings for the Op Ed Page and the Letters to the Editor Page of The New York Times (from 1980 through 1983 during President Reagan’s first term).
