We asked multidisciplinary concept pop artist and author Ganzeer for a visual commentary on the political climate around this year’s presidential elections. The following images are Ganzeer’s take on the situation, as well as his remarks about each illustration.


Political Cereal

Let’s face it, packaging matters. It’s all about the design, colors, and buzzwords. Nobody reads the ingredients or the fine print. Nobody really cares about what’s inside the box as long as it’s well within reach and has enough artificial flavorings to help swallow the damn thing. Welcome to the aisle of American politics.


Greatest Country

The Democratic Party seemed to think it a good idea to counter Trump’s ridiculous 'Make America Great Again!' slogan with the even more ridiculous "AMERICA’S ALREADY THE GREATEST!" – The way to alienate victims of gun violence, sufferers of student debt, and the sickly who are denied treatment. To hell with what the World Happiness Index has to say.


We The People

Behold the sacred text, heralded by five enlightened male caucasians of abundant wealth. May the unwavering vision of the founding fathers guide America until the end of time.


Liberty

"Amendment II – A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed" should not translate to "kill thy neighbor."


Military Tax

Thank goodness we don't have a draft anymore. Thank goodness only 54% of our tax money funds the largest military on the planet. Thank goodness not one political party is doing much to challenge that.

Being a pacifist never felt better.
