This painting is a response to Trump's obsession with building a tremendous wall on our Southern border, and the symbolic wall he appears to be building around himself. The title is a direct Trump quote…. as advertised, The Donald uses “the best words”
The scene continues around all four 1.5" edges

My conceptual cover and interior illustrations have appeared in numerous publications including The Village Voice, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Golf Digest, Newsday, Philadelphia Weekly, Barron’s, Oxford American, Business Week, Bloomberg, National Lampoon, Seattle Weekly and Discover Magazine. Also, I've created book illustrations for Reader's Digest Books, Houghton Mifflin, St. Martin's Press, Harcourt Brace and “Emily and the Ostriches” (Rizzoli Publ.), a children's book collaboration with Dan Bernstein. In 2015, six of my paintings were published in “50 Masters of Realistic Imagery”. For the last 18 years, I've been concentrating on painting larger canvases and exploring deadline/art director-free conceptual approaches. Socio-political commentary ... shaken, not stirred.
