Steve Brodner has posted an interview (by Steve Heller) on Drawger. Anyone curious about why artists do what they do should read his point of view.
Brodner speaks with remarkable clarity about visual communication:
SH: Many of your caricatures are politically motivated. Do you believe that your art will have some impact on politics? SB: Nope. I learned a long time ago that the point of it has got to be the love of communication in pictures with strangers about important things in a way that has a chance to be meaningful and compelling. How people react is up to them. Some engage, some don’t. My job is to light the lamp as best I can.
