Like the kid in his middle school class drawing his teacher with a thick wart addled nose, and wild electric hair, drawing is at once engaging and provocative and, inexcusably cruel and petty. My reportage drawings carry with them the weight of their weary creator. Drawing Americans in particular is an activity fraught with outrage and deep, penetrating sadness. We are at the end of at least one kind of world. If what is revealed in my drawings is true then we are screwed. If they are the product of my paranoid delusions then I guess we are safe. For now anyway. Enjoy the drawings and feel free to contact me at email@example.com. My website is at: www.louisnetter.com.
