Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".

Raw Art and Artist Elizabeth Layton
Here's four examples of the raw art before it's been "cut out" and manipulated in Photoshop. I treat them as paper cutouts which allows me to slide them around until I find color and composition that pleases me.
I found this woman's story inspiring (out of one of my books on drawing). "Having endured a thirty-five year struggle with depression, she took a drawing class at age sixty-eight and learned the technique of blind drawing-drawing without looking at the paper. She credited this process with curing her depression and saving her life."
