Art Soiree

Tom Toles doesn’t mince words; he doesn’t have to. The Pulitzer Prize winning editorial cartoonist for The Washington Post takes on social and political issues with art…….such as deflategate, the sports scandal currently surrounding the New England Patriots as they head into the Super Bowl to pair off with the Seattle Seahawks on February 1st. Some think the scandal is just hot air; Toles thinks it’s food for fodor. #DeflateGate

Toles, Art Soiree and Suspicious Package hooked up for a one night stand at The Ritz Carlton in Georgetown for the Fifth Annual Political Cartoon Exhibit where walls morphed into cartoons.

We asked Tom how he gets inspired and if he ever gets creative block: “Inspiration is like the grain of sand in an oyster. The world is full of irritants. You try to make pearls out of them,” he said. “I feel like I have creative block every time I sit down to draw. It is the demon that must be battled and beaten.”
