Oof, ya'll slapped Trained Rage around a bit, eh?
The Demon Boar saga lol
Bill Sienkiewicz's portrait of the same woman.
Apparently, the only people that are worthy of having their political opinions listened to are backwards, mouth-breathing white trash from the South who did some research on drudgereport.com. Only they know what's really going on.
Even if this weren't a justifiable depiction of her, it's pretty tame and shouldn't worth any amount of controversy outside the political right. This isn't Kathy Griffin.
Nice one Jim.
Good work, Jim. Also, that's quite well drawn, I'm impressed, I didn't realize he was doing art until this thread.
Can't bring any worse than Berkely Breathed's take on a certain politician...
I don't understand the motivation to VIGOROUSLY defend your own completely admitted uninformed opinions. An uninformed opinion is of NO value, period. You shouldn't be surprised that people treat it as rubbish when you trot it out there. We have all been there at some point, the better people take the time to look stuff up, or abstain rather than poking out their chest and arguing the integrity of an 'opinion' based on no actual information.
OT, I really don't get what the outrage is over this painting. Saw it early and people were trying to act like this was some egregious thing.
At the age of 56, I do hope I can sit at home and just create (paintings; music or otherwise), smoking (something) and just kick back - stirring the pot from a house in a place far away from anything that ultimately doesn't matter.
I'm under the impression that Mr. Carrey has fallen (risen?) to a point of nihilism (or the absolute contrary! (it's hard to tell ^^)); - i.e. nothing truly matters as they seemed to and I don't have to play along anymore. That's why he may rather paint, act unexpectedly and furthermore, quite ironically, choose not to act.
I like his paintings though, from what I've seen.
Her face isn't crooked enough.
It’s sad when Trump supporters get upset that celebrities they admire turn out to be anti-Trump.
It’s like, for a split second, they see themselves for what they really are, and then they react with anger instead of self reflection.
Which parts of the conservative platform do you support? Or which are you most proud of? Just curious.
I hate her so much and I feel bad for it. I just hate the way she lies and I can’t hell it.
Here is more Carrey art.
Had no idea Carrey was painting. He's pretty good, although the SHS is a little too on the nose, his other works look quite nice.
One day I'd like to see a take on the Trump presidency like The Truman Show, where one rational person is surrounded by lunatics
I love it, if I were rich I'd offer to buy it. Thanks for spitting truth Jim.
God bless this man, I love Ralph Steadman.
The right loved to attack and keep doing this to Hillary yet this is crossing some line?
I say its all fair in war.
The art is quite wonderful, but I'm not going to bother with receipts because you would just backpeddle.
I don't really understand the outrage behind all this except for Conservatives and trump supporters being mad that Carrey decided to insult the white house propaganda mouthpiece.
Honestly, people sling shit at democrats and socialists for years, it is nice to see the kid gloves come off with some people who have more of a voice than I do.
The first time I saw her speak I honestly thought it was an SNL skit.
Yeah Carrey has come into his own as an artist. Dude is pretty great and has come a long way from being the guy people laugh at in comedies.
This was kind of a page six story that had been floating around for half a week. In cranking up outrage, Fox News made what should have been an afterthought into a viral punchline. The alleged Sanders portrait (and it's alleged because nowhere is it explicitly pointed out that the person is Huckabee Sanders) was not Jim Carrey's first stab at political commentary in his art, but it's the first to get serious blowback. I mean, why not ignore this like they have with the dozen or so other samplings that Jim Carrey has done over the past few months?
Wow, that's actually very good
My thoughts and prayers go out to her and her loved ones during this difficult time.
Carrey's painting of Sarah Huckabee Sanders looks like it would be a character who gives you missions in Hotline Miami.
Not meant as an insult to the painting, either. I like it.
Nice painting. Free speech, bitches, deal with it.
