Opening Thursday, October 25th, from 6PM - 8PM
Join us for the book release of Drawing on Anger: Portraits of U.S. Hypocrisy by artist, Eric García. Drawing on Anger is a collection of Eric J. García’s most unabashed political cartoons about U.S. history and politics from 2004 to the present. Garcia reconstructs pivotal moments in history—such as U.S. complicity in the disappearance of forty-three Mexican students, genocide and torture in Iraq, and femicide along the U.S.—Mexico border—and reflects on the larger themes of anti-immigration laws, global imperialism, veteran affairs, and the conquest of the Americas. His cartoons are equally critical of both political parties and of both the United States and Mexico–lobbing criticism and satire in every direction.
For over a decade García has been serving up inked visuals with the sharpest of political critiques through a Chicano lens. If you’re looking for funny punch lines, these aren’t the cartoons for you. But if you want to pull down Uncle Sam’s pants and see what’s really going on, this is your book.
