How Animation Artists See Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton (Updated)
The U.S. presidential elections will take place in a little over a month, ending one of the goofiest political cycles in the country’s history.
No matter which side of the fence you’re on, it’s been hard to ignore the outlandish cartoonishness of this year’s candidates, something that has not gone unnoticed by artists working the animation community. Industry artists have been working overtime to create some fantastic cartoons and caricatures of the Republican and Democrat candidates—Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, respectively—and frankly, they’re funnier and better designed than a lot of the work being done by professional political cartoonists.
We’re happy to share some of them today on Cartoon Brew. If you know of other politically-themed cartoons created by industry artists, share them in the comments.

Another rewarding illustration trend has been creating scenarios that incorporate the cartoon candidates with famous animation characters. Not all of these were created by animation artists, but they’re all worth sharing.
