Michael Ramirez masterfully employs the full arsenal available to the visual satirist. He wields sharp caricature, pointed commentary, and slicing artistry with equal abandon. It is rare to find a cartoonist who deftly creates both dark moods and light humor with such skill and intelligence. His work effectively eviscerates sacred cows and makes us laugh, even as we sometimes grumble.
