Chuck Clore, Springfield, MO Member Since August 2010 Artist Statement After a rewarding career in advertising and graphic design Chuck Clore has rediscovered an earlier passion for editorial cartooning and cartoon illustration.
"Producing award-winning graphics for the marketing team has its perks but none compare to the rush of self expression you get by poking the bear with a Sharpie. I try to be an equal-opportunity antagonist, prodding pachyderms and donkeys alike. But I fall a little to the right of center, taking shots at both extremes. Whether the caricatures make you smile or hit a nerve their real value is provoking thought. So...whaduyathink?"
Chuck was born a Hoosier, "Go Crawfordsville Athenians!" moved to Minneapolis, "Go Vikings!" and settled in Springfield, MO "Go Cardinals! He has worn more caps than the Mad Hatter: Vice President of Advertising, Creative Director, Youth Pastor, Daycare Director, Publication Designer, Graphic Designer... the Clore Quest for a true calling may well be discovered in his cartooning!
Validate the restless soul. Buy his toons. Frame his thoughts. Hang 'em somewhere provocative.
