WARNING: Graphic Content

Have your IDs ready and your intolerance for dirty pictures and controversial ideas checked at the door for it’s time to step into the head of Mr. Fish, where filthy ideas meet deep insights and something like inspiring woe, discouraging indifference and gleeful nihilism are born!

After interviewing notorious brainiacs such as Art Spiegelman and Noam Chomsky and spending many months pouring over every kind of art, beginning with 40,000 year old cave paintings and ending with the most contemporary scribblings, Fish has written a book that explores the significance and insignificance of art as commentary.  Find out what is right and wrong with the profession of political cartooning.  Discover the truth about why our visual language is so much more adept than our verbal language at explaining and understanding the existential stuff and nonsense that elates and burdens us everyday.  Have you ever wondered this:  If Yoko Ono sat silently in the middle of a crowded auditorium in her underpants and everybody was there to see it, would she make any sense whatsoever?  Or:  What is a bogey ball and does it really need to be made out of real snot to be impactful?

Mr. Fish answers all these questions and more in his brand new eBook, WARNING: Graphic Content, now available for pre-order at a crazy-ass discounted price on Amazon.  Dig it.  (And feel free to contact the author regarding speaking events and signings: mrfish@clowncrack.com)

Here’s an illustration I did for a piece published on WhoWhatWhy.com about the government that runs the government that runs the government.  I loved how nostalgic it made me feel for the Bush years, when doomsday was so easy to predict and rail against.  Dig it.

Here’s something that I wrote for Truthdig about the importance of public art.  It was written in support of the campaign to prevent a Paul Conrad sculpture from being dismantled by the City of Santa Monica in California.  I will be participating in an event on Monday night (Jan. 13th) in LA hoping to raise money and save the piece from demolition.  Dig it.

Holiday Re-Animation

by admin December 19, 2013 Words

‘Tis the season, once again, to amp up our enthusiasm for groundless optimism and synthesized hope and to role play love and understanding amid twinkling lights, roast goose and the benevolent voodoo we imagine emanating from a mythical and telepathic baby Jesus rumored to be coming back as a grownup any day now for the […]

Cartooning from the Deep End

by Mr. Fish June 19, 2013 Words

Pablo Bryant has begun work on a new documentary film about Mr. Fish called Mr. Fish: Cartooning from the Deep End.  You can see the trailer for it here (scroll to the bottom of the page).  What the movie will likely reveal is that Mr. Fish is really just a frightened little girl whose lazy […]
