UPDATE: We’re thrilled so many people would like to reuse these caricatures in their own publications. Please refer to the “About Newscom” page to find out how you can legally do that.
Sure it’s great to get those photos of politicians shaking hands and kissing babies. In a pinch, you’d probably even settle for a talking head as artwork on a story. Sometimes you’re lucky enough to come across a great photo showing a politician with their shoes off, or making a grumpy face at an aide or three – something different enough to add depth to your political coverage. All of those are great options for covering a story, but when it’s time to get down to the real circus that’s a presidential election, those photos just won’t do.
That’s probably why some of the most-downloaded images on Newscom – ever in the history of Newscom downloads – are political caricatures. Specifically, the two above of Mitt Romney and Hillary Clinton top the surprisingly long list of caricatures grouped with the most popular Newscom images.
So, with the official kick-off of the 2012 presidential election campaign season, we thought we’d highlight a few of the political caricatures that will likely grace the pages of publications around the country. These caricatures on Newscom is just another way that Newscom is helping you tell your story, no matter what it is. Do you have a favorite?
You can get all the pictures of the candidates leading up to the 2012 US Presidential election – both real and cartoon – on Newscom’s new 2012 US Presidential election website. It’s got all of the great things that Newscom offers, but it also has some cool new features that we put in place just for this election. Specifically, the front page is full of quick links to each candidate – with JUST photos of the candidates. None of the other nonsense that you may have to wade through just to get to the images you really want to use. It’s easy to get to a few portraits of Rick Santorum reacting to the results of Iowa Caucus.
We also have quick links to other things relating to the campaigns, like quick links to see what Michele Bachmann is up to now that she’s suspended her campaign for president. Or images of the wives of each of the candidates, like Anne Romney or Karen Santorum.
So check out these caricatures here in this post, then head over to Newscom’s election page to get all the latest images relating to the 2012 campaign that you need to tell every story throughout the election season.
