Dan Youra is a master at the art of political cartooning. His colorful caricatures conjure up national politicians, media personalities, celebrities, and world leaders. No person is too lofty to evade the slings and arrows of his graphic editorials. Dan’s fans review his art: ”Fun!” Sarah Palin; ”Entertaining!” Mitt Romney; ”Very Interesting!” Ron Paul; “Thanks for sharing your talents, Paul Ryan; ”witty and very unique,” Reince Priebus. ”Dan draws fun and beautifully portrayed political cartoons,” lauds Cathy McMorris Rodgers, House Republican Conference Chair. The highest ranking, Republican woman in the US Congress adds, “He’s a huge talent for the conservative cause!” Dan’s incisive commentaries on national and international politics are captured in edgy, digital art. A flick of his finger can elevate the downtrodden or bring down the mighty. He doesn’t dodge hot issues. He thrives on them. Dan’s idols are two of the twentieth century’s greatest, political cartoonists: Bill Mauldin, who urged editorial cartoonists to be “stirrer-uppers;” and, Jules Feiffer, who defined the two most important qualifications needed for a good political cartoonist as “basic intelligence” and “ill will.” Dan’s unique skill is that he can say more in 10-seconds with no words, than the Krauthammers, who pontificate for 10-minutes between commercials. In the words of Luke Esser, past chairman of the Washington State Republican Party, “Dan makes you laugh and he makes you think – and we need more of both today.” Dan spices up the national, political soup with “acerbic” wit and “superlative” art on his two websites: utoons.com and IamTrump.com. He invites other’s ingredients at dan@youra.com/.
