Pat Oliphant by Pat Oliphant
No one is safe from the acid brush of Pat Oliphant, acknowledged by many as the nation’s most influential political cartoonist. A master of what he calls "confrontational art," Oliphant spares neither the liberal nor conservative, sinner nor saint. As the most widely syndicated political cartoonist in the world and a winner of the Pulitzer, he produces work that is as visually stunning as it is metaphorically powerful.

Oliphant, 47, was born in Australia.
His father, Pat, is a political cartoonist who moved to Denver in 1964 because of the censorship laws in Australia. Two years later, he drew an editorial cartoon that won a Pulitzer Prize. Sometimes, Oliphant recalled, his father received death threats because of his incisive pen.
there may be a touch of censorship in Australia BUT on a sunny day very few people notice...
