Mark Fiore is an editorial cartoonist who creates political cartoons from an undisclosed location in San Francisco. His work appears regularly in a wide variety of online news web sites. I felt like he efficiently utilizes his multimedia skills with every cartoon he illustrates. Not only are the editorial cartoons informative, but they are visually capitvating and interesting, which is what many web surfers are looking for.
Today is an age where even well-written articles are overlooked, simply because society looks for an easier way to get their news. They want videos that play with the click of a button.
Though, with an age so driven by visual entertainment on the internet, the content in these videos must also be easily grasped and understood. Mark Fiore does all of that–and then some.
Not only are the cartoons well-crafted artistically, but the scrfipts behind them are EXTREMELY well written. The voice overs are well fitting and the sound effects create the perfect scene. The animations tackle hard topics with a sense of humor and deliver your “NEWS in a NUTSHELL.”
As a side note, everyone should watch “Un-gay.” Hilarious!
