Hmm. Now I'm confused. non-biased TV says he's losing, then they say he's a possible upset

Bernie Sanders by bierdestone on deviantart 2016
I am revisiting my previous entries to see what I'm doing wrong which is resulting in either, lurkers who never comment, or not receiving comments because nobody is interested in my pix.   It's simple logic that success in creativity requires consistence in hashing out content week after week.  Remember Vine? and how Viners always had new material every day if not twice a day.   Well, I can't even clear my drafting table.  It gets cluttered with papers, books, glue, ink, pens, tape, bills and a whole lot of other miscellaneous junk.

These illustrations that I do rely on the photography of others that I find in the media (either newspapers, magazines or Internet.)   Marketing these doodles is something I probably wouldn't have full copyrights for because of the photo I use as a reference source. Sometimes I go into a fantasy mode.   Dreams of actual compensation from a syndicate or publishing firm leads to earning press passes to high profile events so I could take my own photographs for references. Or, gaining permission from the original photographer by corresponding with them explaining how helpful their photo was for me to produce my illustrations.   Then, when I don't hear a response because, I don't see a successful photographer taking time to write me a letter if I can't even get peeps to comment on my entries, I am clear to interpret the silence as approval.

Wasn't the 2016 elections cryptic? The photo of Bernie I used for this illustration didn't look like he might be flashing the peace sign to his followers the way the drawing might suggest to some that he might be crossing his fingers behind his back with his other hand.   I'm just realizing that now, Nov 24, 2017.

When I draw these parodies, I don't know what the end result will look like until I have the pencil sketches complete.   I use a technique I learned in middle school for creating psychedelic patterns in a complementary color schemes.

If I decide clearing off my drawing table to draw more of these high profile personalities, I think I will leave off the calligraphy.   Instead of crossing his fingers behind his back, I think what I was visualizing was Bernie holding a joint behind his back, seeing that THC has always been an illegal activity.   For now, I really want to write more;   preferably screenplay treatments addressing the changes in pot smoking that currently seem to be undergoing scrutiny in legal states.   With any luck, I might even be able to exercise my skill to conjure up effective captions.

I was trying to be politically correct when I said that there could be such a thing as non-biased TV. Guess I was deferring the subject of my statement with an object worth scrutinizing. Basically, you're saying I need to work on my pitch whenever I update my blog with these illustrations so that my subject title, or customary rant, are apolitically received?

Not at all. I was just surprised to hear of the possibility of unbiased TV. I've yet to find it. I used to think it was MSNBC (or at least I was congruent with their bias) until I found them to be so pro-Hillary and anti-Sanders, it cured me of watching them. That's all.
