Cartooning from the Deep End

Documentary on Controversial Cartoonist Mr. Fish

Mr. Fish (Dwayne Booth) is an American cartoonist whose work can most regularly be seen on and His work truly pushes the envelope as he mixes fine art with political cartoons to create some of the most hard-hitting and visceral cartoons to be found in the US, and indeed the world.


Pablo Bryant decided to make a documentary on this remarkable artist and his work. The principal photography for the movie is done, and the team behind the documentary has launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds to edit the movie. Their pitch starts with:

I'm going to be honest, this is a short documentary about an outspoken artist, with some very controversial and outrageous art, a lot of which could be offensive. So if you're easily offended read no further. Some people do not understand subversive, satirical humor or why it's important, but if you're still reading this, than I doubt your one of them.

That should be enough to at least convince you to watch the Indiegogo promo where director Pablo Bryant explains why this documentary is important:

And if you need further convincing, here's the trailer:

Now, head over to the campaign page to support this awesome project!
