When the folks at The Nation asked me to help with their September 29th issue I leapt at the chance. Their idea was to do a McCain/Palin cover along the lines of the The New Yorker‘s controversial “The Politics of Fear” cover by Barry Blitt from July.

The challenge was how to pull off a parody of a parody. I knew illustrator Karen Caldicott would be the perfect choice. Her wonderful, humorous sculptures would lend the right touch. I think her illustration works great on many levels.

It’s already creating a buzz out on the blogs.
