PAUL CONRAD: Drawing Fire  Conrad Gallery

A cartoon of Richard Nixon’s face composed by a spider web that spells out names including Ehrlichman, Haldeman, Magruder, Mitchell and Liddy
This cartoon features Nixon caught up in spider webs spelling out the names of his aides that were providing evidence against him during the Watergate investigations. John Carroll, former Los Angeles Times editor, explained: “You have to look at it twice to figure out what it is, and when you do, it’s just very striking.”
