Jim Carrey, the Actor as Political Cartoonist

Actor/comedian Jim Carrey has long had a talent as an artist.

Carrey, who says he began painting six years ago to “heal a broken heart” following his split from Jenny McCarthy, primarily paints in his studio in downtown Manhattan, and his art has been featured in a number of galleries, including the Wyland Galleries in Waikiki, Hawaii, and Lake Tahoe, California.

Lately he seems to have enthusiastically embraced a new career as political cartoonist.

Since November [2017], around the one-year mark under President Trump, Carrey has been busy creating satirical cartoons of the Trump administration and the Republican congressmen under his sway—and then tweeting them out to his 17.9 million followers.

One of Carrey’s most famous is also one of his most recent. As Jim says:

So I fixed the controversial TIME Magazine cover. This is much more appropriate. You’re welcome

In March of 2018 Marlow Stern at the Daily Beast detailed the origins of Jim Carrey’s new calling. Since that article Carrey has been issuing political cartoons on an almost daily basis. Unlike most editorial cartoons these days the comedian’s commentaries contain very little humor.
