Manipulating media with progressive intensity
Political cartoons, caricatures and illustrations created with Photoshop by DonkeyHotey.
DonkeyHotey art is most commonly found at the DonkeyHotey Flickr photostream where the images have received over 2.7 million views.
The art of DonkeyHotey is a combination of caricature, photo collage and photo manipulation. The resulting work can be categorized as caricature, cartoon, illustration and art depending on the intent.
On this blog, I have documented over 1,140 editorial uses of DonkeyHotey art on websites around the world including repeated uses on Esquire.com, Daily Kos, Forbes, Mother Jones, and dozens of others.
I am looking for a home base
I would like very much to work as part of an editorial team focused on producing digital content. One great benefit to me would be have access to a larger pool of images to use in my compositions. Now I restrict my selection of raw images to Creative Commons and public domain sources. Being on staff with a publishing entity would expand my creative options dramatically.
So far, I have posted over 1,100 images under Creative Commons license at Flickr. This has enabled publishers to find and publish my work. I have viewed this as a way to improve my work and to see what editors are looking for in artwork. I feel that I am ready to begin working full time for a publisher or to get involved at a digital startup or other project where my work would fill a need. If you are interested in working together please post a comment to this page.
About the posts on this blog
Most of the items in this blog are examples of writers and/or publishers using DonkeyHotey caricatures, cartoons and illustrations. The idea is to show visitors to this blog how DonkeyHotey images are being used by editors and writers across the Web. The examples have been discovered by various means. This effort is not an attempt to capture all uses of DonkeyHotey art. Links to these examples and the actual use of DonkeyHotey art in the content by the writers and publishers should not imply an endorsement of the content. In fact, I have not read most of these articles I link to completely. If I have linked to something you find objectionable please let me know. I am just trying to show how people are using my work as licensed under Creative Commons.
