Well, you can always send him a short email explaining your intentions: _http://www.clowncrack.com/contact/
Who knows? He might be the type to endorse the subversive use of his own material. Or not.
This is the letter I just wrote:
RE "more than art"
Dear Mr. Fish
My name is ... I am an illustrator from Germany. I'm sure you are getting many mails from admires or even critics, since your artworks are expressive not only in terms of artistry but in terms of truthfulness as well. “Truth” is a currency that seems to have lost value in modern times, but it hasn't lost power. It's something that scares the overlords and frees the peasants, if only for an instant. It frees them, when they laugh about the absurdity of global leadership, the insanity of the greedy, the ill-minded and self-aggrandizing bulls running the china shop. It makes them feel a little more sane in an insane world. Your cartoons support their growing impression that their leaders don't live up to their expectations, or even that they don't at all have their best interests at heart. It's a common feeling they all share. It unites the many, while the few are starting to sweat beneath their masks, which are slipping out of position little by little.
Since I am an illustrator myself I really appreciate your work. I'm also seeking ways to communicate truthful aspects of life in my own way. I don't want to just masturbate in terms of style and virtuosity. Like you I want to get to the bottom of things.
There is a very promising none-profit-news-site on the web, dedicated to free and unbiased journalism: "The Signs Of The Times" http://www.sott.net/
It's another attempt to promote the truth. You know that things are heating up on our big blue marble. Everything is messed up to such an extend that I don't know where to begin. Since the few aren't willing to do something about it, the many must take matters into their own hands. Let's join forces! There is no telling how much time we have left. I attached a few flier to the mail, showing how this could take shape. With your permission, I'd like to promote SOTT while featuring your cartoons at the same time. What do you think?
With kind regards,
