Summary:
"A political cartoonist known for his subversive and often controversial art, Mr. Fish's work can be seen in publications such as Harper's, The Nation, The Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly and The Village Voice and sites like truthdig.com. In this intimate and revealing documentary, we are introduced to the dangerously funny cartoonist as he struggles to stay true to his creativity in a world where biting satiric humor has an ever-diminishing commercial value. Having found success creating compelling editorial cartoons, we meet Mr. Fish as his profession is on its way out. Editors previously willing to back controversial work are disappearing as fast as the newspapers which once employed him. A brilliantly insightful and timely documentary, Cartooning From the Deep End is about the kinds of compromises a radical artist makes (or refuses to make) while trying to live in a traditional society."--Container.
