Mark Fiore certainly wasn’t the first to post animated political cartoons to the web, but he is probably the best known of the cartoonists who specialize in animated political commentary. While many animated editorial cartoons are a single panel with animated bits, Fiore actually does 30-45 second animations. He works in Flash and uses sound effects, pop-up banners and starburst announcements that feel like they come from 50’s television ads.
Though he’ll take a good swing at anyone he thinks is acting stupidly or irresponsibly, Fiore’s political bias is unabashedly to the left. If you like the Bush Administration, you’ll probably find Fiore offensive. On the other hand, if you find the Bush Administration offensive, you’ll probably like Fiore.
