Drawing The Right Way Book Review by Mike Ramey
Free to Share
Author requests article critique
For a professional reviewer, there are times when a book is easy to obtain and review. You file a request with the publisher. Then, it arrives at your home via mail. You open the package, and you set the work on your ‘reviewer’s pile’ with a note to remind you when the book arrived. Then, there are those ‘other’ times when a work arrives; the reviewer opens the package, the book is placed on the pile--and it disappears AS the reviewer reaches for it?
Why? The members of the reviewer’s family gets hold of it…and fully enjoy it!
Such is the case with Gary Varvel’s latest work: “Drawing The Right Way:
A Conservative Cartoonist’s View of the World” (2019, 160 pages, Gary Varvel/IBJ Book Publishing). Varvel, well known editorial cartoonist with Creators Syndicate, officially ‘retired’ from “The Indianapolis Star Newspaper” early in 2019. However, his pen and high-tech drawing gear didn’t get the memo and he sailed on into the sunrise of retirement designing and publishing this collection of some of his greatest work.
Over the years, Varvel was on the front lines of many a national and Indiana headline. Having developed a keen eye, and a visual sense of style, wit and relevance, the vision of this book came to be. Many of the ‘toons in his book are a time capsule of the last twenty or so years of political and American history…the way he sees it. There are no ‘soft pitches’ in “Drawing The Right Way”, but a firm set of strikes over the plate. You WILL get an honest view of the political scene as well as some of the top ‘eye catchers’ concerning popular--and unpopular--social issues.
Not only does Varvel share his observations and humor, but also his faith in God, through Jesus Christ. A section of the book contains a tribute to the Easter and Christmas holidays. Great artwork to celebrate both times of the year.
“Drawing The Right Way: A Conservative Cartoonist’s View of the World” by Gary Varvel is available through your favorite electronic book seller, or, through garyvarvel.com. You may want to get an extra copy…just in case yours manages to walk away with your family members, once you get your copy home.
