Circus or Zoo? San Juan Politics gets help from a pro.

Circus Flyer Art work design
Circus Flyer Art work design
Does anyone else recognize the style of the San Juan Circus hit piece? It was professional and reminded me of the Political Zoo published by Savage. His artist did the cover. This was an expensive flyer. Who paid for this flyer art work? The design and creativity was not some cut and paste job. Any thoughts on this?

I was reminded of this book and the cover art. Certainly the use of a ZOO and a Circus, so much the same. The art work is very well done. Michael Savage can afford this kind of cover art, can Mayor Sam or San Juan Cares afford this pricey art?

The artwork was done by a graphic artist that works for the communication firm that printed the flier, Donna. Not so pricey. The fliers don't cost much more than an edition of Common Sense. Who pays for that? Not the advertisers ...

He is at it again. Jonathan David Volzke, who claims he knows nothing of what is going on at San Juan Cares, sure knows who is making the drawings and then the mailing. Sure is much to know for a guy who says he doesn't know anything....

It sure makes you wonder where Rob Ferguson gets all this money to pay for all these fliers....maybe Sam Allevato?

Or maybe Sam Allevato's rich Rancho Mission Viejo development buddies? Don't think Sam has multiple thousands and thousands of dollars to spend on all the flyers circulating around town and in the mail and the websites. But he does have our tax dollars to spend fighting the First Amendment in order to keep a watchdog newspaper banned. Someone wants him to remain in power real bad and keep the council majority in power. At least until the puppeteers don't need him anymore.

I thought Ferguson was in financial trouble. So how can he fund San Juan Cares? And is he doing this in his spare time for fun, or is HE getting paid as the frontman?

Sunshine....That is my question too. Who wants to keep Allevato in power so bad that they would spend big dollars for flyers with professional art work, printing, and mailing....2 times? That land deal is so fishy. Their web site still says it is for weddings and equestrian events and we know that land on Ortega, and off La Pata, is not appropriate for either venue.

How much does an edition of common sense cost John?

OMG that is the best capture of the gang!!! LOL, nearly choked on my sandwich. Anyone know where I can get a large print? The artist is quite good and captures the essence of the personalities...especially the gut on the fat guy and the beloved jester!!!!

San Juan Cares.org can get you copies.

Is the ring leader suppose to be Fleming? Just asking... Is this the cause of anger?

Fr. Serra? You have changed you priestly, "now my child", manner of speech? Much like the painting uncovered in the Chapel in the mission, lift the top layer and you will find the true artist, or at minimum, the inspiration for the San Juan Circus flyer. .http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/political-zoo-michael-savage/1102583534?ean=9781595550422

Fr. Serra... I believe the ring leader is supposed to be Pauly. I am an advocate for honest government and have never run for a public office.

When you find out who did the work, let me know. I'd like to contribute. I haven't seen anything so bitingly satirical since I studied Swift's Gulliver's Travels. And now the Lilliputians are furious.
Donna Fleming February 11, 2014 at 06:23 AM
Patrick....This being the case, you will love the book by Michael Savage, "The Political Zoo". I especially liked, Persona Manipulatus or Hilary Clinton- the limber leopard.
