The colorful cast of characters found in the Jacob Sanders ‘Editorial Illustrations’ should be familiar to anyone who has been following American politics for the last year or so.
Most of the artist's wrath, satire, bemusement—however one may define it—is directed at the intrepid candidates who have sought or are still seeking that ever-elusive, tirelessly fickle Republican presidential nomination. In one illustration, Newt Gingrich is shown gingerly placing a framed picture of a child’s drawing of a crescent moon and earth smiling tenderly at a boy in a spacesuit—how sweet.
Rick Santorum, whether he is one’s blessed savior or dreaded harbinger of all things big ‘C’ conservative, deserves credit for surprising the pundits. He has managed to eclipse Newt Gingrich and give Mitt Romney a run for his (plentiful) money. He is depicted in the Jacob Sanders Editorial Illustrations as a menacing giant smashing those two candidates together.
Needless to say, the the Jacob Sanders Editorial Illustrations are apt.
