You know you're smack dab in the depths of an presidential election when every (and any) single issue or event is dragged kicking and screaming into the political realm. This time? The NFL replacement referees' debacle which has become the latest political football (pun intended) for the campaigns to bandy about, allegorize, metaphorize and flat out bastardize. Oh well, only 6 more weeks to go.

Scroll down to see more examples of Lalo Alcaraz's work.

About the artist:

Lalo Alcaraz is perhaps the most prolific Chicano artist in the nation, according to his own bio. Lalo has been busy for over two decades chronicling the political ascendancy of Latinos in America and vigorously pushing the boundaries of Chicano art in the Post Chicano Art Era.

An award-winning journalist and illustrator, Lalo is also an author, faculty member at Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles, and radio host. He is also the creator of the first nationally-syndicated, politically-themed Latino daily comic strip, “La Cucaracha.”

Lalo’s most recent project is a re-boot of the famed Pocho.com, his pioneering humor, satire and cerveza webzine/blog/news site.
