ENRONERGIZER BUNNY (Dick Cheney), May, 2002.

From 1997—2003, I did a once-a-month, satirical "mini-poster" for the back page of the LA Weekly. Sue Horton hired me (!) and edited out my few slanderous words. Bill Smith art directed the whole shebang and kept me from using too many
corny Photoshop effects. What did I know? I just made the art and bad puns. As for bad? You can't get worse than Dick Cheney. He inspired us to do our worst (best). Cheney's connection to Halliburton and the 2nd Iraq War—"What's their land doing on our oil?"—is what drove us to this iteration.

Here's a tip from Uncle Robbie for you kids out there: any bad guy looks a whole lot better with pink bunny ears.
