The face of malice

Maxine DeFarge

PJ O’Rourke once took a “Peace Cruise” up the Volga with a group of American leftists, and wrote a brilliant description of one of the peaceniks, a woman who he described as ugly, but “not the kind of ugliness that’s an accident of birth but the kind that is the result of years of ill temper, pique, and petty malice. These had given a rattish, shrewish, leaf-nosed-bat quality to her face.” Every time I draw Maxine Waters, I’m remined of that quote.  Her face seems to radiate that kind of “ill temper, pique and petty malice” that we’ve come to associate with the social justice set.  She is ugly to the bone.
